The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures Announces Access Program for Low-Income Families
Tucson, Ariz—July 5, 2018– The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures proudly announces that it 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 for a minimal fee.
At The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, families who present a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and a valid form of photo ID may visit for the reduced admission price of $1 per person (up to six people). Museums for All is part of The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures’ broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences.
Museums for All helps expand access to museums and also raise public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities. By removing the financial barrier, Museums for All also removes the social and academic barriers families face when they are not exposed to high-quality museum experiences. More than 250 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 more than 40 states. A list of participating museums can be found here.
