We all need a place to get “unplugged” and reconnect with our families. The Museum’s Transformations Gallery for children is that space for thousands of families every year providing a free place for children to explore, create, and get hands on with art and history.
Transformations is a well-loved space and is in need of a little TLC. Your Georgia Gives Day donation will go directly towards new interactives and teaching props for Transformations. Help us freshen up our children’s gallery and instill a love of art and history for generations to come!
Visit gagivesday.org, search for the Museum and let all of your friends know that investing in the Museum as a cultural and educational anchor of the Chattahoochee Valley is important to you!
