Visitors are paying it forward at this adorable science and culture museum.

"Pay it forward" is making its way to the museum world.

When a grandmother couldn’t afford to pay the entrance fees at Roberson Museum and Science Center for her and her grandson, the museum leadership team got creative.

Instead of turning the woman and her grandson away, a staff member found an older coupon to get her in for free. But the museum didn’t stop there. The executive director, Michael Grasso, decided to make accessibility for all a program called “Pay it Forward.”

When Christina Causland stopped in a bathroom at the HomeGoods in Solana Beach, California, she found an unexpected surprise: a pile of diapers.

Unused, luckily. Sitting atop the small pile of wipes and diapers was a small note. It read:

"I once found myself in this exact same spot with a newborn with a crazy blowout and NO DIAPERS or WIPES. An unmitigated disaster, that was! Just in case you have found yourself in the same sort of pickle, I brought in some wipes and diapers to save the day. Good luck out there! Happy Holidays! —Sarah"

A guy down on his luck walked into the Winter Garden Pizza Company in Winter Garden, Florida, to buy a piece of pizza. Then he found that he was 50 cents short.

That's when Debbie Liskey, the manager, quickly turned to the bulletin board behind her. "Look, we can use one of these," she said. She pulled off a "pay it forward" note, good for 2 slices, and handed it to him. When she said, "You'll even get an extra slice," the man started crying.
