NOTE: MODA will be closed to the public from March 13 to March 27. All special programming will be rescheduled at a later date.
Here is the museum’s statement:
In response to the growing concern surrounding [current events], Museum of Design Atlanta will be closing to the public from March 13 to March 27 and all public programming will be rescheduled. At MODA we are taking this situation seriously and are giving the health of our patrons and staff priority. If you have a scheduled event with the museum a staff member will be contacting you in the coming days to discuss rescheduling.
At the end of the two week period we will be reevaluating based on latest updates and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Stay tuned, MODA will be planning online programming during our closure and will be continually updating our status via our social media channels and website.
Museum of Design Atlanta
On the second Sunday of most months, you can get FREE admission to MODA, the Museum of Design Atlanta. The event was previously known as Family Free Day, but has been rechristened as Design Club Day.
While admission and special programming are free, you must pre-register to attend. BOOK EARLY, because when the event is at capacity, you’re no longer able to register or get the free admission voucher.
The next FREE Design Club Day is Sunday, January 12, 2020. The museum is open from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This month’s design activity involves using graphic design techniques to create a poster.
MODA is located at 1315 Peachtree Street in midtown Atlanta.
About Design Club Day
Bring your family to visit the museum free of charge and to participate in design and STEAM activities that are fun and educational. (STEAM is an acronym for “science, technology, engineering, art, and math.”)
MODA’s mission is to advance the understanding and appreciation of design as the intersection of creativity and functionality through exhibitions, education, and programming for visitors of all ages.
