Give to the Wheels on the Bus Campaign. Because museums matter to kids.
If you think kids are captivated with smartphones and video games, you should see them on a visit to Mia. The carefully planned tours are designed to engage young people and help them develop their observation and critical thinking skills.
Through guided discovery, children learn that the museum is a safe place to have a conversation, form an opinion, and be OK when someone has a different view than their own.
But unfortunately, many students miss the opportunity to visit Mia simply because their school can’t afford the bus transportation needed for a field trip. That’s where the Friends Transportation Fund and Wheels on the Bus campaign comes in.
Started over 20 years ago and funded through generous donations from individuals, the program provides busses for approximately 7,000 K-12 students to visit Mia each year.
Please support this program by making a donation. Thank you for your generous support!
