Free Admission with PA EBT FAQs

Get the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Free Admission Program for PA EBT Cardholders.

Can I get free admission with PA EBT in another state?

Yes, your PA EBT Card qualifies you for reduced-price or free admission at all participating Museums for All locations in another state.

Can I pay with admission with my SNAP EBT Card?

No, your SNAP EBT card only qualifies you for the reduced or free admission. You cannot use your SNAP EBT Card to purchase anything that is not a food or grocery item – including admission. Any admission costs must be paid for with alternate methods, such as cash or credit.

Can I use WIC or something other than SNAP to get the Museums for All rate?

Many of the participating museums will accept WIC or some other form of identification, but they are not required to. Please check with the museum before you visit, as there is no guarantee that they will honor anything besides a SNAP EBT card.

The museum I want to visit isn’t on this list. Can I still get discounted admission with my EBT Card?

While most museums offer some type of discount to SNAP EBT Cardholders, we cannot guarantee that you will get an admission rate of $3 or less. Please contact the museum you wish to visit and ask them about them directly about any discounts available to PA EBT Cardholders.

Are there any more discounts available with the PA EBT Card?

Yes, your Pennsylvania EBT Card qualifies you for various discounts including discounted Amazon Prime for EBT Cardholders, discounted cell phone service, free internet service, and much more.

To get a complete list of all the discounts available to PA SNAP EBT recipients, read our PA EBT Card Discounts article.
