****Passes must be returned promptly after use so they are available for other patrons. Failure to return passes will result in a fine or cost of replacement.

Prices and rules are subject to change and are set by the participating organizations.

Some museums offer free admission on special days and do not need a pass from the Paige.  Please explore their websites to discover operating hours.

Visit the Museums for All website for museums providing reduced or free  admission for  visitors presenting their EBT card. This reduced rate is available during all normal operating hours for up to four individuals per EBT card. With a year-round open door policy, Museums for All invites low-income visitors to feel welcome at cultural institutions.
Museums for All is a national, branded access program that encourages individuals of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. The cost of museum admission can be a barrier for many low-income families. 

No admission fees are charged to attend the regular programs offered by the Park Service rangers at this time.
