The Children’s Museum Welcomes Thousands of Public School Children for Free

Free Public School Visitation Program under A Museum For All Initiative.

Amman, July 2011: The Children’s Museum Jordan, a non-profit education initiative of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, has welcomed 29,616 public school children for free since the 1st January 2011.

Under a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Education, the Children’s Museum welcomes public school children visiting with their school groups for free since 2008. In 2010, the partnership was expanded to include employees and teachers registered with the Ministry of Education, who are now able to visit the Children’s Museum with their families for a reduced rate of JD1 per visitor.

The Free Public School Visitation Program is part of the Children’s Museum’s public access initiative, A Museum for All, which seeks to remove barriers that may stand in the way of a child’s visit to the Museum. Other programs include the Free Charity Organization Visitation Program, in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Development, which in 2011 alone enabled 3,978 children to visit the Museum for free. UNRWA schoolchildren, through support by Hikma Pharmaceuticals, are also able to visit the Museum at no cost. In 2011, 9,345 UNRWA schoolchildren were able to benefit from the Museum’s exciting learning experiences for free.

In partnership with Bank of Jordan, Al Ghad and the Greater Amman Municipality, the Children’s Museum also offers its Free Open Day program, enabling visitors to enter the Museum for free every fourth Friday of each month. Since the program began in June 2010, over 42,000 children and families have entered the Museum during Open Days.

The Children’s Museum is a national, inclusive institution dedicated to delivering interactive learning experiences to children from all across Jordan in a fun, family environment. For more information on A Museum for All, visit www.cmj.jo/mfa
