Science Spectrum joins national museum access program for low-income families
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The Science Spectrum Museum in Lubbock announced that it has joined Museums for All, a movement to bring the educational benefits of museums to people of all backgrounds.
Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits visiting the Science Spectrum for a minimal fee of $3.00 per person, up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
Science Spectrum Administrative Manager James Nesmith says Museums for All is part of the Science Spectrum’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences.
This program has involved more than 500 institutions in 48 states, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more.
According to the Science Spectrum, those who wish to participate will present a valid Lone Star Card, New Mexico Fiesta Card, or any other state SNAP EBT card along with a valid photo I.D. The special ticket rate is valid for up to four persons in their party every day the museum is open.
