Alf Museum Announces Free Admission for Low-income Families
The Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology, located on the campus of The Webb Schools in Claremont, announced today that it has joined Museums for All, which provides free admission to low-income families.
Museums for All is designed to expand access to museums and raise awareness about how museums reach their entire communities. It was created by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is administered by the Association of Children’s Museums. More than 850 museums across the U.S. participate in the program.
To participate, families need only show their food assistance program electronic benefits (EBT) card. At the Alf Museum, they will receive free admission for up to four people.
“A key part of our mission at the Alf Museum is to bring the wonders of paleontology – which is really the story of life on Earth – to as many members of our community as possible,” said Dr. Andy Farke, director of the Alf Museum. “Museums for All is the perfect companion program to our school and community science outreach programs.”
The Alf Museum is open from 10 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. No reservations are required.
