Each Magic Monday has a unique monthly theme designed for toddlers and preschoolers and includes a guided exploration of one of our award-winning exhibitions, historic houses, or Goizueta Gardens, as well as demonstrations, arts and crafts projects, and story time.
During the Historic Halloween program, toddlers and preschoolers show off their favorite costumes in a Halloween parade, costume contests, and trick-or-treating throughout the museum. Crafty creatures make Halloween-themed art projects and listen to spooky tales.
Admission is $6.50 adults; $5.50 children. Members admitted free. Discounted rates are available for groups of 10 or more children. For more information, please call 404.814.4000.
