Winter in Chattanooga

Downtown Partnership

The holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to teach children the enduring lesson that it is better to give than to receive. Have your kids join the second annual “Breakfast Club” at the Children’s Discovery Museum and they will get a free admission to the museum. Between December 26 and January 10, bring a donation to the Museum of children’s breakfast items—new boxes of cereal, containers of oatmeal, canned mild and boxes of breakfast bars. Children who come in and drop off their donation will receive a free admission to the Museum at the time of their donation. All donations will be given to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank during these cold weather months when they are short on extra supplies for families in need. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Call the Museum at for more information.
