A new exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta allows children to playfully explore life inside a castle.  

“The Amazing Castle,” at the museum through Sept. 9, transports families inside a castle’s stone walls where everyone has a job to do – from picking vegetables and preparing a royal meal to building furniture and presenting a puppet show. There’s even a sleeping dragon, and visitors can help wake up the serpent-like creature by completing an electronic puzzle. 

The AJC recently connected with Lauren Baker, manager of public programs at the museum, to discuss this creative new exhibit.
