Support Free Admission

 

 

 

 

Do you think museums should be free?

So do we. In our three-year pilot program, our visitation more than doubled - from 14,000 to over 30,000 visitors per year. Free admission means more than numbers. It provides equitable access to arts and culture for our community, where one in three families experience poverty, while providing resources to continue producing exhibits, programs, and events.
