Today’s Solutions: December 05, 2021

As museums start to open back up this summer, San Francisco is making it easier for all residents to enjoy the beauty of art with their new Museums for All program. The new program provides free or discounted access for low-income residents to 21 museums across the city. 

The program was created by San Francisco Treasurer Jose Cisneros’ Financial Justice Project and is part of Mayor London Breed’s commitment to promoting equal access to arts, cultural, and educational opportunities. 

“All San Franciscans, regardless of their income, deserve the opportunity to experience the joy and inspiration, and community that our incredible arts and cultural institutions have to offer,” said Breed in a statement. 

All residents receiving public benefits through the city’s Human Services Agency qualify for free or discounted admissions and need only present their Electronic Benefit Transfer card or Medi-Cal card and proof of San Francisco residency.

The program will benefit 225,000 San Franciscans with equal access to the city’s famous museums including the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, the Legion of Honor museum, and the California Academy of Sciences. A full list of participating museums can be found here.
