The Waffle House museum is in Avondale Estates. Emory University has the Carlos Museum with a bunch of mummies and Egyptian artifacts. Fernbank Museum of Natural History is near Emory. I am in Atlanta for Thanksgiving and went to the King Tut exhibit at the Civic Center and it was okay, but not great.

The DeKalb Farmers Market is worth a visit if you are not already overfed. They have great seafood and a lot of ethnic foods.

The DeKalb Farmer's Market is definitely worth a trip. Lots of icky and squicky things for kids to point at and squeal.

Head to Decatur and just wander around the downtown area. Get the kids hot chocolate at Java Monkey.

IIRC, there are some neat little artist studios/galleries/antique shops on East Ponce as you head towards Clarkston.

And, of course, there's always Stone Mountain, which is great if you enjoy having your jaw drop in amused horror.

I came in here to say the Dekalb Farmer's Market, but it looks like I've been beaten to the punch... twice.

Response by poster: We have been to the Dekalb Farmer's Market once and Loved, Loved, Loved it! I'll see you all there tomorrow.
