Museums for All to increase the accessibility of high-quality museum learning resources
Corpus Christi, TX, JUNE 2021: The Art Museum of South Texas has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits. The program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits visiting the Art Museum of South Texas by providing free admission 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 600 museums across the country. Museums for All is part of the Art Museum of South Texas’ broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences. Museums for All helps expand access to museums and also raises public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities. More than 600 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.
