Museums for All

Sacramento Children’s Museum is proud to join Museums for All, a nationwide access program to remove barriers for underserved families who want to enjoy the museum’s exhibits and programming. Families who present a Golden State Advantage (EBT) card and a matching photo ID can now enjoy Sacramento Children’s Museum for a minimal fee of $2 per person for 2 adults and 2 children. Reservations are required for certain events. EBT cards nationwide are accepted.

Museums for All helps expand access to museums and raise public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching entire communities. More than 700 institutions participate in the initiative, including art museums, children’s museums, science centers, botanical gardens, zoos, history museums, and more. Participating museums represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. Virgin Islands. The program by the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences is administered by the Association of Children’s Museums.

Reservations are not required to visit the museum using the Museum for All discount.
