The Children’s Museum of Atlanta is in downtown across the street from Centennial Olympic Park, World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. Explore the many exhibits and programs designed for children 8 years old and younger.
The children’s museum is a 8-minute walk away from the Peachtree Center Station on the red and gold lines and a 15-minute walk from the GWCC/CNN Station on the blue and green lines. If you’re traveling with kids and need an emergency bathroom en route, public facilities are located in Peachtree Center and the CNN Center.
Outside the Peachtree Center train station is the Peachtree Center streetcar stop (use the Ellis Street/Peachtree Street East station exit). Pay a separate $1 fee to ride the streetcar to the Centennial Olympic Park stop. From there, walking time is about 4 minutes to the museum via Centennial Olympic Park Drive. Download the ATL Streetcar app for iOS or Android to purchase tickets in advance or via the vending machine at the streetcar stop.
The streetcar also travels to the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site for additional sightseeing.
Bus 51 departs from the North Avenue Station and has a stop near the Children’s Museum of Atlanta on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. The bus also travels on Marietta Street, Howell Mill and next to Georgia Tech, making this route a convenient option for students or residents who live in West Midtown. You can pay cash (exact change only) to ride the bus or use a Breeze Card. It’s free to ride the bus if you are transferring from a train.
