No worries, y’all, we do have an inclement weather plan! We'll be keeping an eye on the forecast and let you know of any changes.

Our new after–hours program series, hosted on the fourth Friday of each month, gives guests the chance to kick-off the weekend by grabbing a drink and exploring the museum. Join us in November at Smith Family Farm for s’mores roasting, music, and holiday–themed cocktails.

Enjoy traditional holiday carols performed by singers from the Alliance Theatre’s A Christmas Carol as you stroll to Smith Family Farm.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door; free for members. Members please RSVP to membership@atlantahistorycenter.com.
