Major US museum now accepts Bitcoin (BTC) as a payment method

Great Lakes Science Center, museum and educational facility in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, will accept Bitcoin as a payment method, Crain’s Cleveland Business reported.

The museum announced that it would begin accepting bitcoin transactions starting November 13. The box office will use BitPay to process the transactions.

Two American museums known to accept the cryptocurrency today are Museum of the Coastal Bend in Texas and St. Petersburg Museum of History in Florida.

The Great Lakes museum begins accepting bitcoin ahead of the Blockland Solutions Conference, which clearly inspired it. That inaugural four-day event takes place in December; admission can be paid there in bitcoin as well.

“There is a lot of excitement around the conference,” – said Great Lakes Science Center president and CEO Kirsten Ellenbogen in a statement. – “Accepting bitcoin is just a small part of the momentum to grow a blockchain ecosystem in Cleveland.”
