A participatory parade near the Centennial Park attraction and ribbon-cutting ceremony are being planned for the opening day celebration.

When it reopens, the Children’s Museum will feature two additional permanent exhibits, a new 3,000-square-foot mezzanine level, enhanced existing galleries and a permanent performance space for the Museum’s Imaginators performance troupe.

Meanwhile, while work continues, the museum is launching a Play Pledge ATL campaign online to encourage Atlantans to play creatively and then challenge others to do the same and share their activities on social channels with #playpledgeatl.
