Museums are for everyone
Wednesday, October 26, 2022 by Tai Moses
Thanks to a grant from Union Pacific Railroad, the Bullock Texas State History Museum is offering free admission to participants in the federal food stamp program, as part of the Museums for All program. Bullock Museum Director Margaret Koch said in a press release, “We are so grateful to Union Pacific and the Texas State History Museum Foundation for its support in helping the Bullock become more accessible to everyone in our communities. Museums for All allows those with limited financial resources to visit the museum exhibitions with their families without economic barriers.” Starting Nov. 1, families who participate in the food stamp, or SNAP program, or the WIC program, can show their EBT card at the ticketing counter and get in free. Any accompanying family members or guests may also gain free admission.
