The ACCESS Philly Program allows individuals with a PA ACCESS Card to attend 48 cultural sites & theaters for just $2!


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
