Hands On Children’s Museum to offer free admission to low-income children

Children who receive state assistance can now visit Olympia’s Hands On Children’s Museum for free, thanks to a large donation from the Washington State Employees Credit Union.

The museum and credit union announced the partnership Wednesday. The credit union pledged $225,000 per year for the next five years, for a total of more than $1 million.

The initiative, named Inspired Learning for All, is intended to help the Hands On Children’s Museum reach underserved families in Thurston County and beyond.

“We know that family, culture, community and environment shape a child’s future success,” said museum executive director Patty Belmonte.

More than 305,000 people visit
