Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences to offer a signature access program that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. Show us your Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and photo ID to receive discounted admission ($1 per person) for up to 4 people. RAM’s participation in Museums for All is part of our mission to seek, include, and welcome all.

The National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, together with its state and local member programs, supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every abused or neglected child in the United States can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive.
