Jackson Hole Children's Museum

The Jackson Hole Children’s Museum recently handed out 150 family passes to social service organizations, hoping free entrance would expand its reach in the community.

Over 150 free family passes to the Jackson Hole Children's Museum were recently handed out to social service organizations in an effort to increase visibility and accessibility to the nonprofit.

“These organizations work with families that may not know about the museum, or have the means to take advantage of our services,” Children's Museum Executive Director Jean Lewis said in a statement. “So, we find that working with referral organizations is a really effective way to expand our reach.” 

The Children's Museum is also exploring ways to provide programming for kids with disabilities and “evaluating how we can make accommodations to meet various physical, emotional and sensory needs,” Education Director Hatilie Lemke said.

“We strive to provide a safe and interactive space for children of all abilities to learn through play,” she said.

Social service organizations that would like to request family passes may email info@jhchildrensmuseum.org.
