Program History

The Museum Access Fund was created in 1998 as a response to a growing financial need in the education community for no-cost/low cost access to co-curricular science experiences for students. The Museum partnered with passionate donors who stepped in to fund access to the Museum for students in the local San Diego community. The Museum Access Fund has grown over time from connecting with 2,000 students a year to our current annual aim of serving 6,000 students a year.
