The capital of the South

Luxury mega-malls, the World of Coca-Cola, and world-class museums are just some of what make Atlanta an attractive travel destination for so many Americans and foreign visitors. Atlanta also offers lesser-known attractions that define the soul of the city, like Victorian buildings and historical landmarks, a rich assortment of skyscrapers, gorgeous parks, and year-round festivals. Atlanta will keep you busy for days, but even those who spend just a few hours here will never forget the pearl of Georgia.

Each breathtaking exhibition is crafted to inspire, entertain and educate. The children and young at heart will love different activities and galleries like the Cold Water Quest, Ocean Voyager, Tropical Diver, River Scout, Planet Shark and Georgia Explorer.
