Although the physical doors to Atlanta’s iconic cultural destinations are closed, curiosity continues to thrive online. For that reason, the city’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. 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. Because many plans were canceled or rescheduled because of COVID-19, this programming still allows all communities to participate in meaningful and fun digital experiences together.
Cyber 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 in Atlanta attractions are:
- Atlanta Botanical Garden
- Atlanta History Center
- Breman Museum
- Chick-Fil-A College Football Hall of Fame
- Children’s Museum of Atlanta
- Fernbank Museum
- Georgia Aquarium
- High Museum of Art
- Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University
- National Center for Civil and Human Rights
- Zoo Atlanta
