ACCESS Cardholders

F or those Pennsylvania residents who monitor their government-issued cash, food, or medical benefits with an EBT card, you are invited to visit participating museums, science centers, gardens, historic sites and theaters at a deeply discounted rate. Similar to the reduced admission offered to students, senior citizens, and military professionals when showing proper identification, ACCESS cardholders will be able to do the same, and enter participating venues for just $2. Forty-six local cultural venues are on board, and excitedly awaiting your visit. Art-Reach does not distribute these cards, but we do coordinate this opportunity to existing cardholders at our Access Philly sites.

ACCESS Philly

ACCESS Cardholders (those Pennsylvania residents who monitor their government-issued cash, food, or medical benefits with an EBT card), are invited to visit participating locations at the deeply discounted rate of $2 per person. ACCESS Philly is a public initiative broken down into two styles of cultural experience, ACCESS Admission (museums, gardens, historic sites)  & ACCESS Live (live shows at theaters).

How it works:

  • Bring a valid ACCESS Card with a photo ID
  • One (1) ACCESS Card admits the cardholder and up to three (3) people at a rate of $2 per person. The person whose name appears on the ACCESS Card must be present to obtain the discount.
  • EBT funds cannot be used to pay admission
  • Discount is not valid for special exhibitions, special events, or with any other offers

ACCESS Philly is a city-wide initiative led by Art-Reach and supported by various community partners. ACCESS Philly is supported by:

As a mom of a son with special needs for 12 years, we just found out about the program this summer. It was an absolute joy to be able to go to the Franklin Institute as a family.
