Gateway to the World
10 months - 8 years
Travel the world right here at the Children's Museum of Atlanta. Visit six continents, launch a rocket, and climb through the layers of the Earth in the Museum's newest and largest permanent exhibit.
Explore the layers of the earth in this 2-story climbing structure at the center of the Museum. Once children have reached the earth’s center, they may use kid-power to make the outer skin of the earth spin. Due to the tight space and inability to allow for social distancing, the Globe is currently not accessible.
Continent Tables +
Learn about six of the world’s continents, their geography, river systems, and animal life at the Museum’s interactive continent tables. Children can feel an earthquake on a shake table in South America, test the temperature of a glacier in North America, find the major cities in each country and push trains throughout the landscape.
Rocket Launcher +
Be a rocket scientist! Design and build a rocket and then launch it to the planets. Will it reach Mercury? Mars? Jupiter? If it didn’t make it, re-design your rocket and try again! Young astrophysicists will learn about physics and engineering with this hands-on activity.
The Climber +
How high can you climb? This two-story structure helps children see the museum from a new point of view as they build their climbing skills and confidence levels.
