With practically everything closed due to COVID-19, we have some fantastic news to share with you! Atlanta’s top attractions are joining together to provide virtual experiences to the community—including educators teaching remotely—for free.

The initiative includes ongoing social media and website posts of unique content from 11 organizations, culminating each week with a special “Field Trip Friday” event. The first event begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 3. A variety of activities and experiences allows audiences to take a virtual field trip or enjoy a virtual spring break around the city from home. Since many plans were canceled or rescheduled due to the virus, this programming still allows all communities to participate in meaningful and fun digital experiences together.

Online audiences can discover behind-the-scenes animal encounters, tours, hands-on activities, experiments, storytimes, spring blooms and more. Members, educators, and other visitors can find links to this special content at ATLMuseumsatHome.org, as well as by searching #ATLMuseumsatHome on social media, or by visiting partner websites.

This curated programming provides educational and entertaining experiences to bring the community together at a time when people need it most. Participating Atlanta attractions:

Atlanta Botanical Garden

Atlanta History Center

Breman Museum

Children’s Museum of Atlanta

College Football Hall of Fame

Fernbank Museum, 3D Theater, and Forest

Georgia Aquarium

High Museum of Art

Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University

National Center for Civil and Human Rights

This free programming will continue and adapt as needed until guests are able to enjoy in-person experiences again. Visit ATLMuseumsatHome.org for more information. We’re looking forward to the first Field Trip Friday already!
