MUSEUMS FOR ALL
Museums for All is a national access program that encourages individuals of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.
Admission to our museums are always free of charge. Because of this status, we naturally align with a program called Museums for All. This program is a cooperative initiative between the Association of Children's Museums (ACM) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to offer an access program that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.
Our museums connect community and family members with their cultural heritage. We also connect with a larger audience as we further our mission of “preserving and sharing the unique history of Beaver Island and the Archipelago with visitors,’ Museums For All supports our values of community, emphasis on education, cultural diversity and encourages families to visit our museums.
