The Children's Museum Of Atlanta
The mission of Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta is to spark imagination and inspire discovery and learning for all children through the power of play.
My boys, six and three, love this place. It's so stimulating and fun. If you put in the effort to help your kids learn, it can also be educational. The museum makes a great effort to keep refreshing the rotational exhibits and to put on entertaining shows and events. We've been coming here since my oldest was two years old. I recommend membership if you live near to the city and you can afford it. It's great value. We probably come ten times a year.
Kids had a blast and not too expensive. They have many things to climb and crawl through. Kinetic sand play area, probably my favorite. They have these ball contraptions they are really fun. They have art and building classes. Lots of learning material. Upstairs they have more learning stuff and Tech things and games. I totally recommend visiting this place. Definitely worth your dollar.
Our daughter really enjoys going to the museum. She is two and most of the activities are catered to children a little bit older. There is one area of the museum dedicated to toddlers. It features a large fishing pond (rain jackets are in limited supply) and has some areas for them to crawl and explore (think mini treehouse). The sweet spot is if you have a kid that is 4-6 in my opinion. Nevertheless she can go and play with other kids and run around giving us a solid nap in the afternoon. There is no parking but several pay lots surround the area. Not a huge fan that children and adults cost the same but not overly opposed to the pricing structure as it is a museum for kids so there really is not a need for a children’s price and an adult price. We purchased a membership and will get plenty of value out of it over the course of a year.
This place is fantastic, especially Rachel! We placed an order for our son's birthday party at The Children's Museum and were worried about the delivery window, as we only had the party room for a certain amount of time. Rachel worked with us to make sure the pizzas were double cut and even communicated with us after the order left so we could meet the driver outside. Side note not on their website: If you have an order over $100, go through their catering team, as they have a manager deliver it and you have much more flexibility and control over the delivery. We didn't do that because we didn't know regular deliveries are managed by Uber Eats; corporate should put this on the website. But all worked out well! Our order arrived at 3:43pm (scheduled for 3:30pm - Mellow Mushroom had it ready on time) and the party room started at 3:45pm. Amazing food and again, stellar customer service from Rachel and the team she was working with to take care of us!
Season pass is worth it! We drive all the way from Woodstock and our 2 boys love it (4yr old and 2yr old). Lots of activities and classes to keep them entertained for hours. Parking downtown can be a hassle, but plenty of lots available in the area, just be prepared to pay. Wish there was a parking option available with the season passes.
