Every Child Program
The Children’s Museum of Phoenix, as a service to community members of the City of Phoenix, provides free or reduced admission access to approximately 50,000 people each year through the Museum’s Every Child Program.

The program allows low-income or at-risk children and families to access the Museum’s rich learning environment and experience programs and exhibits that reach out to any audience.
The Every Child Program is made possible through the support of generous individuals, corporations and foundations. The program is partially funded through a generous grant from
The Every Child Program is also partially funded by:
