When choosing attractions for the little ones, consider selecting places that are indoors during the months that are prone to inclement weather. When it is cold outside, you will naturally want to spend more time indoors. Although the weather is milder during the spring, you and your family can escape the rainy weather by visiting some of Atlanta's great indoor attractions that are targeted to families.
If you haven't been to the Georgia Aquarium, you can avoid the crowd by making a trip there during the winter or early spring. The variety of underwater life will keep the entire family entertained. Take the time to read about the various creatures, and you can easily transform a fun attraction into an educational attraction.

The Atlanta Cyclorama is yet another attraction that will keep the kids entertained when the weather isn't quite cooperating. Children who are ten and older are most likely to understand and enjoy the Cyclorama the most. Children who have learned about the Civil War will find the exhibit of interest, especially if they are visual learners. Although there is a museum that the family could explore, the actual Cyclorama is more suitable for children who do not mind passively watching a production in a theater.
Combine dinner with your attraction when you visit Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. Your family will sit in an indoor stadium and enjoy a chicken dinner while watching mounted knights battle in a ring. It's fun to read about the knights before heading out to the show. You'll find yourself cheering for your favorite knight, or you'll at least be amused by the antics of the knights and horses.
