Atlanta’s museums brilliantly highlight her rich and tumultuous history, and well as her increasing notoriety in the nation’s art and culture scene. From the precious art of High Museum Atlanta to the high-tech touches at the College Football Hall of Fame, patrons continuously meet with engaging opportunities for fun and learning.
The permanent and visiting exhibits in Atlanta display captivating exhibits to draw you in, but the special programming they offer will win you over. High Museum of Art hosts a number of city-celebrated programs, including Friday night lectures and live music, monthly free family programming, open studio time for teens and a host of free events on the Sifly Piazza. Michael C Carlos, a museum of ancient art, provides monthly story time for children, workshops for teachers, film screenings, workshops for older children and more.
Center for Puppetry Arts’ museum reopens in November, expanded to include interactive exhibits with The Jim Henson Collection of puppets, as well as an immersive global puppetry encounter. While under construction, performances, workshops and films will still continue to run. Also greatly anticipated is the opening of the new exhibit at Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Eight acres of all-new experiences set in the natural woodlands adjacent to the Museum will feature family-friendly and inspiring ways to explore and enjoy nature.
Whether you prefer history, art, special programming or something altogether different, Atlanta’s museums will impress and delight you.
