The Museum’s Impact
In 2014 The Museum welcomed 18,975 guests. Of those 767 were elementary students who participated in educational opportunities provided by The Museum and its donors. Overall our admissions were up in 2014 by 21.4%. More then have of this increase was attributed to free admission for our Community Partners.
Community Partner Program
Our Community Partner Program was established in 2013 and through this program we are able to reach out to more children in our community. CASA, the Kinship Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center, Community Action Partnership, RISE, Family Care Network and several other youth based organizations are allowed free access to The Museum. In 2014 we welcomed over 400 children being served by these groups.
Jack’s Helping Hand
Jack’s Helping Hand uses a space in The Museum for their Adaptive Toy Lending Library. The Lending Library allows parents and caregivers free access to toys for their special needs children. These toys can be checked out from the library to be played with at home.
