Philbrook Museum announces access program for low-income families
TULSA – The Philbrook Museum of Art has joined “Museums for All,” a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Association of Children’s Museums, to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.
The program takes effect Jan. 1 at Philbrook, which is located at 2727 S. Rockford Road in Tulsa.
The daily program supports qualified guests visiting Philbrook for a minimal fee of $1 per person, up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT), WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) or SoonerCare cards. Children 17 and under are always free for general admission.
Similar free and reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 400 museums across the country. “Museums for All” is part of Philbrook’s broad commitment to seek, include and welcome all audiences.
“Museums for All” helps expand access to museums and also raise public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities. More than 400 institutions participate in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums and more. Participating museums are located nationwide, representing 48 states.
