Association of Children’s Museums Collaborates with National Geographic

Arlington, VA (January 31)—The Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) and National Geographic Media have announced a collaboration to offer exclusive benefits to children’s museums. ACM U.S. members will now have access to bulk discounts on Nat Geo Kids and Nat Geo Little Kids magazines as well as curated digital content. Through more than 375 ACM members representing all 50 states, children’s museums welcome 31 million visitors annually. 

Exploration, education, connections among the peoples, animals, and environments of the world are things that children’s museums and National Geographic Kids have in common. Nat Geo Kids (aimed at ages 6+) and Nat Geo Little Kids (ages 3-6) provide a wealth of content across topics like animals, science, geography, and history tailored towards young and youth audiences that can be a resource to children’s museum educators and staff, as well as a good read or great visual to curl up with in a reading nook or quiet space at a museum.  

“Children’s museums serve the needs and interests of children by providing exhibits and programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning,” emphasizes Arthur G. Affleck III, executive director of ACM. “Together with National Geographic, we are pleased to amplify our reach to serving children and families in alignment with our strategic vision and mission to enrich their lives and ensure a bright future.” 

National Geographic will offer a discounted rate of $19/annual subscription of Nat Geo Kids and Nat Geo Little Kids to ACM member museums. National Geographic will also offer a 30-Day Digital Free Trial to National Geographic’s digital subscription for ACM members and staff. 

“National Geographic has been inspiring exploration for over 135 years,” said Julie Galvin, Vice President of Partnerships for National Geographic Media, “We are thrilled to collaborate with the Association of Children’s Museums where together we strive to spark curiosity and wonder in kids of all ages.”
