Five bucks and some change will give Tennesseans access to family-friendly fun at Creative Discovery Museum on May 29. Creative Discovery Museum is among the select locations across the state that people can visit for $5.29 per person.
The 529 Day is part of an effort to raise awareness about the Tennessee Treasury Department’s TNStars College Savings 529 Program, which offers families a low-cost way to save money for college expenses while receiving certain tax advantages.
The event has been dubbed TNStars 529 Day after Section 529 of the federal tax code, which allows states to setup college savings programs.
Creative Discovery Museum will offer $5.29 admission for the day and 5.29 percent discounts in the café, gift shop and on Museum memberships. Regular admission is $12.95. The Museum will also extend its hours and close at 5:29 p.m. on May 29.
“We are pleased to partner with the Treasury Department to increase awareness of a program that can play such an important role in a child’s future,” said Henry Schulson, executive director at Creative Discovery Museum.
Tennessee residents can also visit www.TNStars.com/529day to register to win a variety of TNStars 529 Day themed prizes, including $529 toward a college savings account, family VIP packages to baseball games, museum memberships, gift certificates and more. As part of this promotion, the Creative Discovery Museum is offering a prize of a free membership plus a gift certificate for $52.90 to the Museum Shop.
