Kingwood Joins Museums For All

17 Apr , 2018  

Kingwood Center Gardens has announced on Facebook that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This affiliation means that low-income families can visit Kingwood for a minimal fee of $1.00 per person, for a cardholder and up to 4 individuals, with the presentation of an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a photo ID. Children aged 12 years and under are always admitted free.

Through the Museums for All program, EBT holders will also receive 15% off all Kingwood workshops. Please note that some events are not covered under this reduced admission fee.

According to the national program website, Museums for All is based on that premise that “…by removing the financial barrier, Museums for All also removes the social and academic barrier families face when they are not exposed to high quality museum experiences.”
