Thanksgiving Point’s $2 Tuesdays Returns

-Social distancing procedures and advanced ticketing in place-

LEHI, Utah (July 29, 2020) – Thanksgiving Point ( announced the return of one of the most popular activities of the year, $2 Tuesdays in August. Since 2008, Thanksgiving Point has hosted this promotion as a way for those unable to afford regular admission or membership to attend at up-to 90 percent off regular adult admission. 

“We discussed canceling $2 Tuesdays to prevent crowds from forming,” said Mike Washburn, President and CEO. “Ultimately, we knew that the community’s need for transformative learning experiences hasn’t changed. We believe limited capacity, enhanced safety measures, and respectful guests will make this year’s promotion possible.”

For just two dollars per person/venue, guests can visit any of the five Thanksgiving Point venues—Museum of Natural Curiosity, Museum of Ancient Life, Ashton Gardens, Butterfly Biosphere, and Farm Country. Normal admission ranges from $7 to $20 per person.

Because of the pandemic, the following safety guidelines are in place at Thanksgiving Point:

  • Limited tickets available
  • Guest capacity timed and limited to 1/3 normal occupancy
  • Masks required for all guests ages three and up
  • Social distancing required of at least six feet between parties

For those unable to attend in August, Thanksgiving Point expanded its annual $2 reduced admission to be year-round for those receiving food assistance (SNAP benefits) in 2019.
