Did you know that SNAP EBT card in your wallet also qualifies you for free or reduced museum admission? Museums For All is a national program that strives to make museums accessible to everyone in the community. The museums that sign up to participate offer a freebie or a discount to people receiving receiving benefits thru the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Nationwide, there are over one thousand participating institutions.
These include art museums, history museums, science museums, children’s museums, planetariums, nature centers, historic sites, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, and arboretums.
Under the program, you can get admission for $3 or less for up to four people, just by showing your SNAP card. There is no limit. You can go to as many museums as you like, as many times as you like.
Below is a list of participating museums in the Atlanta metro area, followed by a list that includes participating museums in the rest of Georgia. You can also find a participating museum in any other state.
