What is Museums for All?

Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences that offers a signature access program to encourage families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and to build lifelong museum habits. The goal is to ensure that every child and every family has access to a high-quality children’s museum experience.
