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 attractions 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. Thirty-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 Admission sites.

How it Works

Visiting cardholders must present their valid ACCESS Card and photo ID to receive the discount. One (1) ACCESS Card admits up to four (4) family members at a rate of $2 per person—including the ACCESS Cardholder.

Admission is to be paid by the visitor, not through their EBT card. The ACCESS admission discount is not valid on special exhibitions or features, or with any other offers or group rates. Click on our Access Admission Sites list to see all the places you can go and how to get there. This opportunity is ongoing, and can be used repeatedly. If you like, please share your experiences on social media with #ACCESS2PHL. And Enjoy!

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.
