NORWALK, Conn. -- Every child deserves access to a high-quality museum experience, and that's why the Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk is joining Museums for All, a program to encourage families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.
Museums for All is a signature program of the Association of Children's Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and is designed to provide access for low-income families in the area by offering greatly-reduced general admission to families of Electronic Benefits Transfer cardholders.
Visitors presenting an EBT card and a valid form of photo ID will receive admission to Stepping Stones for the minimal fee of $3 per person for up to eight guests. Regular admission to the museum is $15 per person.
The discounted Museums for All rate is only valid during normal operating hours and does not apply for special evening events.
The EBT cards won’t be used for payment for admission, but rather as a way to identify the visitor as qualifying for Museums for All.
“We are very proud to participate in Museums for All,” said Rhonda Kiest, president and chief executive officer of Stepping Stones Museum for Children. “From Day 1, Stepping Stones has been committed to providing all children, families and schools throughout our region with access to quality educational opportunities.”
The Museums for All initiative represents a long stride toward the goal of reaching more children and parents, especially those living in poverty, with the valuable learning resources of museums, she added.
Stepping Stones Museum for Children is located at 303 West Ave., exit 14 North and 15 South off I-95.
