The Henry Ford Announces Partnership with Access Program for Low-Income Families, Museums for All – Press and Guide

The Henry Ford has announced that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people from all walks of life to visit museums regularly and create lifelong habits of visiting museums. As part of the partnership, and effective immediately, SNAP/EBT and WIC cardholders, plus four guests, enjoy access to the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation and Greenfield Village for just $3 on presentation of their card at any counter. Museums for All is part of The Henry Ford’s overall commitment to seek out, include and welcome all audiences.

The Museums for All initiative has built on several research studies that have shown that early access to informal learning opportunities offered by cultural organizations has a positive impact on children’s development and educational outcomes.

Since the launch of Museums for All in 2014, the initiative has welcomed more than 3.5 million visitors. More than 700 institutions are participating in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more. Participating museums are located across the country, representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.

In addition to the reduced price, parking fees are also waived. For more information about The Henry Ford, its upcoming programs and more, visit www.thf.org or follow @thehenryford on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
