RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Low-income families who want to visit the Science Museum of Virginia will now get to do it at a fraction of the cost.

Local media outlets report that the museum will charge an exhibit admission fee of $1 per child and $2 per adult to families who have an Electronic Benefit Transfer card. If they pay an additional $1, they can watch a movie in the museum’s Dome Theatre.

EBT cards are used by low-income families to pay for things like groceries.

The Science Museum of Virginia is joining a national initiative called “Museums for All” that aims to make museums accessible to everyone.

Regular admission prices for the exhibits are $14 for adults and $13 for youth and seniors.
