SOLOMONS, MD – January 20, 2022 -Today Calvert Marine Museum announces that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.
The program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits to visiting Calvert Marine Museum for free admission, up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Similar free or reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 700 museums across the country.
Museums for All is part of Calvert Marine Museum’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences.
