Montclair Art Museum Offers Community Access Admission Programs
[September 17, 2020, Montclair, NJ] – Staying true to its mission to inspire and engage all people in their experience with art, Montclair Art Museum (MAM) is proud to offer a variety of community access admission programs to include and welcome all audiences.
In addition to programs the Museum has offered for years, such as Library Memberships and participating in the Blue Star Museum program, MAM is proud to add the Museums For All initiative to its community access programs. The initiative allows those receiving food assistance (SNAP benefits) to reserve online tickets for up to 4 people to the Museum free of charge and present their EBT card when they visit.
MAM has also added Free Friday Hours for seniors and immunocompromised visitors, and those with special needs that compromise their ability to visit during regular public hours.
“Coming back into the galleries is a revelatory experience - like seeing color for the very first time,” said Ira Wagner, Interim Director. “We want to share that uplifting experience with all the members of our community. We look forward to your visit.”
When booking your tickets online, look for the "Community Access" option to take advantage of any of the following offerings. Please bring relevant ID to show at check-in.:
