FREE Admission to Imagine It! Children's Museum for Military Families!

Thanks to a donation from The Home Depot Foundation, Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta will offer complimentary admission to active military service members and veterans and up to three immediate family members. The Military Appreciation Days will take place on Sunday, March 25 and Monday, April 23. Proper military identification will need to be shown to get their free pass into the museum.

Military service members and veterans will be given the chance to spend the day with their family at The Children’s Museum and take part in all that it has to offer, including the feature exhibit Adventures with Clifford The Big Red DogTM. Children can board the Birdwell Island ferry and take a journey to the world of Clifford™, America’s beloved Big Red Dog with a heart to match, where visitors can see Emily Elizabeth™ and many of the residents of Birdwell Island. Inspired by Scholastic Entertainment’s top-rated TV show Clifford the Big Red Dog® on PBS KIDS®, the exhibit offers numerous immersive “paws-on” adventures that reinforce “Clifford’s Big Ideas” – ten simple tangible life lessons designed to help young children navigate their world: Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend and Help Others.

In addition to the feature exhibit, visitors can experience the Museum’s four permanent learning zones where children can engage in imaginative, creative play that is essential for childhood development. Throughout the day families can attend unique and interactive performances by the Museum’s dedicated troupe of professional actors and educators – the Imaginators. This talented and enthusiastic group of actors will entertain children and their caregivers through singing, dancing, playing, and creating.

“As a token of gratitude for their services and sacrifices, we are thrilled to host Military Appreciation Days at the Museum. We hope those on active duty and veterans will take the day to spend quality time with their family members at the Museum, creating memories that will last a life time. We thank The Home Depot Foundation for their support of Military Appreciation Days at the Museum,” says Jane Turner, Executive Director of the Museum.

The Home Depot Foundation is dedicated to improving the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families through volunteerism, grants and product donations. In April 2011, the Foundation pledged a three-year, $30 million initiative to address veterans’ critical housing needs.

Museum hours:

Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00

Admission is $12.75 plus tax for adults and children ages 2 and above; children under 2 are free.

Imagine It! is located in the Lucky Marietta District at 275 Centennial Olympic Park Drive NW.
