‘Mu­se­ums for All’ ini­tia­tive be­gins to­day

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

To­day, the Mid-Hud­son Chil­dren’s Mu­seum will launch “Mu­se­ums for All”, an ini­tia­tive of the In­sti­tute of Mu­seum and Li­brary Ser­vices, which in­creases ac­cess to the mu­seum through a re­duced ad­mis­sion fee of $2 when an Elec­tronic Ben­e­fit Trans­fer card and pic­ture ID is pre­sented.

“Mu­se­ums for All” helps to as­sure that all fam­i­lies can visit the mu­seum and have ac­cess to early learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for their young chil­dren. It is part of the Mid-Hud­son Chil­dren’s Mu­seum’s broad com­mit­ment to seek, in­clude and wel­come all, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

Al­most univer­sally, for chil­dren from low-in­come fam­i­lies, ac­cess to the types of early ex­pe­ri­ences that lead to aca­demic suc­cess are rare.

The Mid-Hud­son Chil­dren’s Mu­seum is open Mon­days through Satur­days from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sun­days from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.mhcm.org or call (845) 471-0589.
