Paso Robles Children’s Museum announces access program for low-income families 

Paso Robles Children's Museum
Museums for All to increase accessibility of high-quality museum learning resources

—Today the Paso Robles Children’s Museum announced that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to encourage families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. The program will enable low-income families to visit the Paso Robles Children’s Museum for a minimal fee of $3.00 per person with the presentation of a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and ID. Families can also visit any participating museum year-round for a minimal fee. Museums for All is part of the Paso Robles Children’s Museum’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all. “We were thrilled to take part in this initiative and look forward to welcoming more children and families to the Museum,” said Jennifer Smith, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum. “These programs are vital to reaching more kids in our communities.”

The Museums for All initiative represents a long stride toward the goal of reaching more children and parents, especially those living in poverty, with the valuable learning resources of museums. Children’s museums, with their unique focus on bringing children, families, and communities together, are committed to providing access to all. Each year, children’s museums host more than 31 million visitors. The Museums for All initiative will allow children’s museums to further expand their reach and impact.”
