General Admission Rates

Special Rates

We offer discounted general admission throughout the year, redeemable in person at any Visitor Services Desk. They do not include entry to ticketed exhibitions or programs and are not valid with other offers.

Pay What You Wish Admission

On the first Sunday of the month (10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.) and every Wednesday night (5:00–7:30 p.m.), pay whatever amount you’d like.

Free Admission for PA ACCESS & EBT Cardholders

Receive free general admission for 4 adults with your PA ACCESS card or EBT card and photo ID. 18 and under are always free.

These discounts are made available through partnerships with organizations dedicated to giving people of all backgrounds greater access to arts and culture. PA ACCESS card admission is a citywide initiative led by Art-Reach. EBT card admission is made possible by Museums for All, a cooperative initiative between the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
