What is Museums for All?

Museums for All is an access initiative of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) that aims to ensure that every family and child has access to a high quality museum experience. Participating museums offer deeply discounted admission to any individual or group of up to four individuals participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by presenting an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. The initiative is currently administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM).

Since its launch in 2014, 415 museums in 48 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have joined the initiative, reporting more than 1.9 million visits by individuals meeting the entrance requirements of the program. These numbers reflect the value that participating museums place on access and inclusion, as well as the value that the general public—regardless of current socioeconomic status—places on museum visitation. In many “hub” cities, several museums have come together to become part of this initiative. The charts to the left illustrate the progression of reported visitation and museum participation.
