MANSFIELD, OH - Little Buckeye Children's Museum is partnering with Richland Bank to make museums more accessible to everyone with the national "Museums For All" program.

The Museums for All Initiative is a cooperation between the museums of the National Association of Children's Museums and is designed to further accessibility for lower-income children and children of veterans and active duty servicemen.

Thanks to a $15,000 donation provided by Richland Bank, Little Buckeye Children's Museum will now provide $1 tickets to four family members with a valid EBT card, an Ohio Direction Card, or a valid active duty Military ID. Visitors in wheelchairs receive free admission.

"Research shows that people who have less than a $35,000 income do not take their children to children's museums or natural history museums... those often are the children who need that kind of exposure and appropriate development the most," said Fred Boll, the Executive Director of the children's museum.

Both he and Chris Hiner, President of Richland Bank, were incredibly excited to bring this nation-wide program to Little Buckeye Children's Museum.

"It's the heart of our community. The stronger we make our next generation, they're going to be our future leaders, our future bankers, lawyers, doctors, they get to experience it all here and it makes the community a stronger place," Hiner said after presenting the check to Boll.
