Cultivating an appreciation for our community through imaginative play
Imagine if your child could explore your favorite Athens businesses, attractions, music, and culture in a play museum designed just for them. This is Little Athens!
Why Little Athens?
The goal of Little Athens is to create a space for interactive play where families can connect and kids can learn and develop a sense of our unique community. Envision a little Jittery Joe’s where kids can pretend to make and serve coffee, a little reBlossom Mama Baby Shop where kids can pretend to work, a little Sanford Stadium where kids can kick a field goal between little hedges, and a little Nuci’s Space where kids can play instruments. All of this is possible in Little Athens.
Little Athens has been incorporated as a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit in Athens with the goal of creating a children’s museum. The museum is currently in the planning phase, and a steering committee of prominent Athens leaders have been working together to implement the extensive business plan and bring our community a special place for children to play and explore.
