Those enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with an active card can get reduced or free admission to over 1,200 museums in the United States.
Museums for All, a national program that began in 2014, allows low-income families to become regular visitors to a variety of museums. Each SNAP card allows four guests entry at the same reduced price, which ranges from free to $3. More than 8 million visitors have used the program since its inception. Over 100 participating museums in California are listed below by region.
