The Museum Access Fund was designed to enable science and environmental learning opportunities for all students, with special emphasis on making these programs accessible to economically disadvantaged students. These children, many from culturally diverse backgrounds, have traditionally been unable to enjoy San Diego's rich cultural heritage due to financial constraints of their families and schools.
Thanks to some members of Natural Partners who have designated their support to the Museum Access Fund, the San Diego Natural History Museum is able to remove the financial barrier and host these students to a day of learning at the Museum.
A curriculum guide for pre- and post-visit classroom learning activities to maximize and reinforce students' learning at the Museum Access to the Museum's specimen lending library by the participating school An exhibit map and guide Transportation to the exhibit (as requested by the school).
Support of this special program not only allows an enriching cultural experience for disadvantaged students, but also promotes a life long memory of the day when their imaginations were awakened to the wonders of the natural world.
