What is Museums for All?

Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) to encourage increased and regular museum attendance by low-income and underserved families. The Morton Arboretum is one of only two cultural institutions in the state of Illinois and currently the only public garden in the nation to sign on to this innovative community-engagement initiative. The program launched at the Arboretum on January 1, 2016.
