If you receive PA food stamps, then you can get discounted admission to over 30 awesome museums throughout Pennsylvania.
Both the Access Admission Program by Art-Reach and the Museums for All Progam provide discounted admission for PA food stamps recipients. However, there are some differences between these programs. Access is local and for PA food stamps recipients only. Museums for All partners accept EBT cards from all 50 states! To separate them, we’ve used green titles to distinguish the Museums for All partners.
It is important to realize that you cannot pay for admission with your PA food stamps card. You will show the EBT card to receive the discount but you will need to pay the remaining admission price, if any, in cash or with a credit/debit card.
