Memorial Day

In honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, Georgia Aquarium will commemorate this Memorial Day as part of our Military Salute programming.

At 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 29, 2017, please join us in the Aquarium's main Atrium for a playing of "Taps" and a Moment of Silence.

Other activities that will take place from 11am-2pm include:

  • In our Tropical Diver gallery, you'll find the Table of the Fallen Comrade. This table, set for one, is a way to acknowledge that members of our armed forces are missing.
  • In our Ocean Voyager Built by The Home Depot gallery in front of the large viewing window, you'll find the Battlefield Cross. The Battlefield Cross plays a part in many memorial ceremonies as a visible reminder of the fallen soldier. Enjoy a special video on our stone wall demonstrating Georgia Aquarium's Military Salute programming including our Veterans Immersion Program, reenlistment support, Military Mondays and Gold Star Initiatives.
  • All active duty and veterans, with Military ID, will receive a cupcake with any Cafe Aquaria purchase while supplies last.
  • Military Salute Fundraisers include:
    • When you make a minimum donation of $5 towards our Military Salute programming, you'll receive a special Military Salute car magnet.
    • Honor your loved one who has served in the armed forces by participating in our Memorial Day Recognition Wall Campaign. By participating, your loved one's name will appear on the Stone Wall in Georgia Aquarium's Atrium twice per hour from May 26 to May 31.
    • Proceeds from both campaigns benefit Georgia Aquarium's Veterans Immersion Program and Gold Star Initiatives.
