Veterans Day

In honor of those who have served in our armed forces, Georgia Aquarium will commemorate Veterans Day as part of our Military Salute programming on Friday, November 11, 2016.

As part of our Military Mondays program, all active military and veterans will receive complimentary admission to Georgia Aquarium all day on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12. Family members will receive 30% off general admission.*

At 12:00 p.m., please join us in the Aquarium's main Atrium for a color guard presentation by The Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) Atlanta Region.

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

  • 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
  • Sign a letter or send a holiday card to our deployed troops
