Kids’ Access Program for Daycares, Pre-Schools and Youth Organizations

LaunchPAD provides a program for daycares, pre-schools and youth organizations who plan to make regular visits (3 or more times per year) to the museum. The organization pays according to a tiered fee schedule based on the number of children served. For organizations where more than 50% of the children’s families fall below the poverty line, the annual fee is half price.
