On Sunday, May 2, 2021, the Georgia History Festival is sponsoring Super Museum Sunday. It’s a day of FREE admission at participating museums and historic sites all across the state of Georgia.
Take advantage of this opportunity to experience local history and culture, as local points of interest open their doors to the public.
Free admission hours are from noon to 4 p.m., unless a site has noted alternate hours.
In past years, there have been over 100 participating museums and historic sites, statewide — including many within an easy drive of metro Atlanta. This year there are far fewer sites opening their doors for free. It’s been a hard year for many arts and nonprofit organizations.

We’ve listed a selection of the sites offering FREE admission here — including those in the extended metro Atlanta area and a few in North Georgia (Cornelia and Dahlonega).
You can search for participating historic sites in counties outside of metro Atlanta and find an interactive map of venues on the Georgia History Festival website.
It’s a good idea to click through the links to review any public health and safety guidelines in effect.
