If it’s been a while since you’ve been to The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, now’s the time to head back. The recently renovated space is now home to Gateway to the World, Step Up to Science, and Fundamentally Food exhibitions, as well as a Let Your Creativity Flow area, complete with a new Arts Studio, paint wall, sand tables, & a stage.
Plus through September 4, 2016, kids can use play to explore their feelings as they work their way through XOXO: An Exhibit about Love and Forgiveness. And from September 24, 2016-January 16, 2017, they’ll be able to investigate three periods of American history via the Magic Treehouse exhibition, which is based on the best-selling children’s book series written by Mary Pope Osborne.
