The second largest art museum in Georgia offers room after room of fine and decorative American art, with a special emphasis on the Southeast and the Chattahoochee River Valley. With kids in tow, don't miss Transformations, the museum's interactive gallery where children can create their own masterpieces.

You visit a place that takes you back in time. The Museum allows you to find out about the Indian groups from this area; the rural schools; the products produced in the area; how people lived and survived. The visit is well worth it.

Nice new museum. It has a nice children's area where they can interact with a wide variety of art focused activities. We went on a Sunday afternoon and had no issues with crowds. Kids (3 and 6) were fully engaged for almost two hours.

This venue is much larger inside than it looks from the out side. They rotate many galleries and collections throughout the year. Plus they have several interaction specials for kids at several times a year
