One of the core beliefs at The Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM) is that every child and family deserve a chance to play. Families going through financial difficulties can visit the BFKCM for $2 per person under the newest program, Access Admission, part of the national Museums for All program an initiative between the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences.
Access Admission is also part of the BFKCM’s Access for All programs which help support families and children in times of need and financial difficulty, giving kids the opportunity to experience the simple joys of being a kid. Other programs in Access for All include Access Membership that offers reduced rate yearly BFKCM Memberships, Organization Access Membership for families that are utilizing various basic needs organizations to visit the BFKCM, Field Trip Grants to reduce the cost of field trips and Discovery Classes for schools with a high free and reduced lunch rate and more.
“Every child, every family needs the opportunity to connect, create lasting memories and forge stronger bonds,” said Jarrad Bittner, Executive Director at the BFKCM. “Our Access for All enables us to examine and remove barricades from visiting the BFKCM and make sure we are accessible to families throughout the community. ”
The Access for All programs are made possible by generous donations from the community. To support the BFKCM and the Access for All programs, visit buildingforkids.org/access-for-all.
