Paso Robles Children’s Museum announces program for low-income families

The Paso Robles Children’s Museum announced that it has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services to encourage families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits.

Museums for All is part of the Paso Robles Children’s Museum’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all.

“We were thrilled to take part in this initiative and look forward to welcoming more children and families to the Museum,” said Jennifer Smith, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum. “These programs are vital to reaching more kids in our communities. The Museums for All initiative represents a long stride toward the goal of reaching more children and parents, especially those living in poverty.”

The Paso Robles Children’s Museum, located at the Paso Robles Volunteer Firehouse, 623 13th St., downtown Paso Robles, is a non-profit 501(c) organization that serves children and families of the general public. The Museum engages children in a joyful learn-through-play environment to inspire educational curiosity while honoring the heritage of our volunteer firefighters.
