CLEVELAND — Beginning Tuesday, participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will be given an admission price of $1 to Cleveland museums, including the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Cleveland Botanical Garden, among others.

The new admissions policy is part of Museums for All, the only nationally coordinated financial accessibility program in the museum field.

“We are excited to help make the Museum accessible to all members of our community by removing the potential barrier of cost of admission,” said Sonia Winner, president and CEO of the Cleveland Natural History Museum. “This program will welcome more families to the Museum to explore and discover together, and foster the ongoing pursuit of scientific knowledge in curious learners of all ages.”

To receive the $1 admission, visitors can bring their SNAP EBT card for the discounted admission for up to four guests.

Other museums in Northeast Ohio that are participating here in the program include:

  • Akron Art Museum
  • Akron Children's Museum
  • Akron Zoo
  • Ashland Historical Society
  • Canton Museum of Art
  • Cleveland Botanical Garden
  • Holden Arboretum
  • Kent State University Museum
  • Little Buckeye Children’s Museum in Mansfield
