Please do not visit if you or anyone in your household has a fever, any other symptoms, or might have been exposed to someone who is sick.

The 40-person capacity is done on a first-come basis. We are unable to reserve slots for members or the public.

We are accepting reservations for Imagination Place birthday parties online. Birthday party registration is online-only.

Admission is FREE to the art gallery and model railroad. Imagination Place admission is FREE for Hardin Center members, $8 per person for everyone 2 and older, and free for children under 2 months. Families with EBT cards may enter for $2 per person.

Not a member? Join online or when you arrive and enjoy 12 months of unlimited admission. Current member? All memberships that expired after March 1, 2020 have been extended by 4 months to cover the time we were closed. New cards will not be issued, but we have your new date in our system.

This continues to be a difficult time for us due to lost income while our operating expenses continue. Please consider a one-time or recurring donation to support the arts programming that we provide. You can give online or text “culturalarts” to 50155. You may also send gifts to P. O. Box 1507, Gadsden, AL 35902. Thank you.
