First Look: Weebles Coast To Coast Exhibit at The Children's Museum of Atlanta




It's always fun taking the kids to the Children's Museum Of Atlanta, especially now that they are unveiling a brand new exhibit. WEEBLES Coast to Coast, is a fabulous new educational traveling exhibit developed in collaboration with PLAYSKOOL® is now on display at The Children's Museum of Atlanta. From June 8 - September 8, WEEBLES Coast to Coast will whisk guests away on a 50-state adventure across the country, all without ever leaving the Museum. Loaded with more than 70 hands-on activities, the exhibit explores the geography, history and uniqueness of the 50 United States. Children can pretend to power a riverboat down the Mississippi, hit a home run at Fenway Park, snorkel in Hawaii and many more! A giant tree house and a themed reading area (A Book Can Take You Anywhere!) inspire children to learn about the United States…and beyond!



The 2,500 sq. ft. exhibit is designed for children ages 4 – 10. Hands-on activities present opportunities for children to build cognitive and social skills, be physically active, curious and imaginative, and express themselves through music, movement and art. Educational content in the exhibit reflects developmental milestones for early learners set by National Association for the Education of Young Children, and national academic standards for school-age children.
