Vulcan Park and Museum announced that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Association of Children’s Museums, to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.
This program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits visiting Vulcan Park and Museum at no charge, for up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
Similar free and reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 500 museums across the country including McWane Science Center, Imagination Place Children’s Museum, Huntsville Botanical Gardens and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
Joe Saling, Director of Visitor Experience is pleased to offer this program that started on August 1.
“Our goal with this program is to remove any barriers that would prevent individuals from accessing the rich history of our wonderful region and to take in the wonder of Vulcan -the original ironman,” Saling said.
Museums for All is part of the Vulcan Park and Museum’s broad commitment to seek, include and welcome all audiences. This program helps expand access to museums and also raise public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities.
More than 500 institutions participate in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more. Participating museums are located nationwide, representing 48 states. For more information of participating museums visit museumsforall.org
