AmuseUm Kids Edition is Sunday, August 30

This year we're expanding the fun to an additional day. AmuseUm: Kids Edition is a special, "pay what you wish" day. Two Bit Circus is extending their stay one day only and leaving their amazing interactive entertainments set up for kids to come and experience. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to visit pay what they wish for admission that day. 

Experience the high tech amusements from the engineering entertainment company, Two Bit Circus. Living at the intersection of technology and spectacle, Two Bit Circus blurs the line between physical and digital playgrounds to create a new world of social amusement that is imaginative and interactive.

During the AmuseUm: Kid’s Edition day, we will ask guests, including members, to “pay what you wish” as a donation to the Museum.

Whether a first time visitor or long-term member, your gift today will support:

  • Outstanding permanent exhibits and traveling exhibits, such as our current exhibit, Thomas & FriendsTM: Explore the Rails! 
  • Outreach programs to schools in 24 counties in TN, GA and other states
  • Free admission for underserved children and families

Why do we need your support?  Because ticket sales, memberships and program fees only cover 60% of our annual operating budget. Your gift to the Museum will be an investment in our kids, sparking a love of science, art and learning that lasts a lifetime.

Thanks for supporting the Creative Discovery Museum, a non-profit institution serving 250,000 children and their caregivers every year!
