There is no better time to visit one of the metro Atlanta area museums that during the first Atlanta Museum Week. Participating organizations are offering special admission deals for admission between April 25 and May 1st as a way to celebrate the city’s museums and cultural destinations. The theme of the week is ‘Discover What’s New’ and is designed to invite people to explore the diverse cultural offerings in Atlanta. For a list of participating museums, visit the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau. If you’re not sure where to visit, here are a few of our favorites.
College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience. I’d consider the College Football Hall of Fame an interactive attraction more than a museum. As one of the newest venues in the Atlanta area, it’s a hot ticket. Guests enter through a tunnel into a three-story atrium with 760 football helmets from different schools; choose your favorite college team for a personalized experience. An afternoon here will make you long for a crisp fall tailgate.
Booth Western Art Museum. There’s a lot more than paintings of cowboys and Indians at the Booth Western Museum, especially for the youngest guests. Sagebrush Ranch is an indoor western art themed playground on the bottom floor of the museum. Kids can ride in a stagecoach, climb a life-sized horse or play cook in the chuck wagon.
World of Coca-Cola. Atlanta is the world headquarters for this soft drink giant. Learn all about the pause that refreshes at the downtown Atlanta museum. Exhibits show the history of Coca-Cola advertising and packaging, how Coke is bottle, and the vault that holds the secret formula. At the end, enjoy tasting Coca-Cola products from around the world. Insider tip: Beware of the Beverly.
