Museums for All
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum (BCMM) 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 visiting the Birthplace of County Music Museum for a minimal fee of $3 per person for up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. This reduced rate is available during BCMM regular operating hours (Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Sunday 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.).
Museums for All invites low-income visitors to feel welcome at cultural institutions with a year-round open-door policy. Similar free and reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 850 museums across the country.
Museums for All is part of the Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences. Museums for All helps expand access to museums and raises public awareness about how museums in the U.S. reach their entire communities. More than 850 institutions participate in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more. Participating museums are located nationwide, representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
