The Children’s Museum of Atlanta provides programs, exhibits and spaces that are accessible to all visitors. Our staff members continuously receive training on accessibility and inclusion to better assist visitors and are always happy to answer questions or provide assistance.

The Museum is accessible to persons who use wheelchairs or other assisted mobility devices.

  • The entire museum is wheelchair accessible.
  • Elevators provide access to Step Up to Science, Lunch Tables and a ramp to access the exterior of the globe in Gateway to the World.
  • Push the blue buttons on the front doors and they will open automatically.
  • All bathrooms and water fountains are wheelchair accessible.

Explore the Museum: Early Hours

On the first Saturday of each month, the Museum opens early so that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families may enjoy all the Museum has to offer at their own pace. The Museum’s social guide, My Visit to The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, takes you and your children step by step through a Museum visit, our learning zones, and program opportunities. Binders are also available at the front desk as well as in each learning zone. This program will resume in 2016.

Service Animals

People with restrained service animals are allowed full access to the Museum.

Free Admission

Target Free Second Tuesday is a special opportunity for the community to bring their children to the Children’s Museum of Atlanta and experience the Museum for free, between the hours 1pm and 6pm. Free admission is made possible through the generous support of Target. Fulton County residents are invited to buy one admission ticket and receive one additional general admission ticket for free on the opening day of each feature exhibit.  Tickets are available for walk-in visitors only and are subject to availability.
