Our History Children’s Museum of Atlanta is a nonprofit organization founded in 1988. In 2003, we opened a permanent Children’s Museum in Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park. Since its opening, the Children’s Museum of Atlanta has become the city’s premier source of hands-on and exploratory learning for young children, a recognized authority on children’s informal learning, a committed advocate on behalf of children, and a signature element in Atlanta’s cultural landscape. CMA receives 200,000+ guests annually and has welcomed over 2 million visitors to date. Children’s Museum of Atlanta is the only educational venue of its kind in Atlanta. Our Mission: To change the world by sparking every child’s imagination, sense of discovery and learning through the power of play.
