Tulsa Botanic Garden Announces Access Program for Low-Income Families

Museums for All to increase accessibility of high-quality museum learning resources

Tulsa Botanic Garden 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 at the Botanic Garden goes into effect immediately.

The program supports qualified guests visiting Tulsa Botanic Garden for a discounted admission fee of $1 per person for ages 13+, up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP or WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Children 12 years and younger visiting with the adults are free. The program is available daily during all normal operating hours and has no limits to frequency of use.

Due to the Garden’s current process of requiring advance tickets, cardholders should call the Garden at 918-289-0330 to get advance tickets issued for their preferred date and time to visit.

Similar free and reduced admission is available to eligible members of the public at more than 500 museums across the country. Museums for All is part of Tulsa Botanic Garden’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences.

Museums for All helps expand access to museums and also raise public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities. More than 500 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 48 states.
