Danville Science Center announces access program

newspaperThe Danville Science Center has joined Museums for All, a national initiative to make high-quality museum learning experiences available to everyone. Enabling low-income families to visit for a nominal fee, the Science Center is expanding its commitment to being an accessible and inclusive community resource.

The Science Center offers a special exhibit admission rate of $2 per adult and $1 per child to guests presenting an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Guests will explore the science of sports in the featured Team Up! exhibition, tour the Butterfly Station and Garden and unlock the fundamentals of science in a variety of interactive experiences. Guests can opt to include a digital dome show for an additional $1 per person.

“It is our goal to make sure that anyone, from any background or circumstance, can learn more about science in the world around them through our exhibits and offerings,” says Adam Goebel, Executive Director of the Danville Science Center. “We are proud to participate in programs like Museums for All and host special sensory friendly evenings to better serve our region by sharing these valuable experiences with everyone.”

Developed by the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences, Museums for All allows guests to visit any participating museum year-round for a minimal fee. Families are encouraged to participate and experience museums across the country – from children’s museums to science centers.

Danville Science Center’s Museum for All exhibit admission rate is $2 per person, for up to four guests per card. Children ages 4-12 and seniors 60+ receive a $1 discount. For more information, visit dsc.smv.org or call 434.791.5160.
