Gazette Premium Content NH children's museum starts new discount system

Associated Press Updated: March 8, 2014 at 12:45 pm

DOVER, N.H. (AP) — The Children's Museum of New Hampshire is offering a new way to provide low-income families with deeply discounted admission.

In the past, the museum has given discount admission passes to social service agencies to distribute to families, but officials say that system was not ideal because agencies had to remind families about the passes. The re-usable passes weren't always returned and there was considerable paperwork involved in administering the program.

Under the new system, families who receive welfare benefits can show their electronic benefit cards at the museum's front desk in Dover and pay $1 per person, a 90 percent discount off the regular price.
