The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) has joined other museums across the country in Museums for All, a signature access program of the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services aimed at encouraging families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. PHMC is committed to making sure everyone can experience the best that its state-operated museums have to offer at the most affordable prices.

This program enables low-income families to explore Pennsylvania’s rich history and culture by visiting participating state-owned museums such as The State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, the Erie Maritime Museum and Pennsbury Manor for a minimal fee of $2 per person with the presentation of an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and identification. This offer is for general admission only and excludes special programs or events.

Museums for All, advances the goals of PHMC’s 21st-Century Task Force, an agency-wide effort to set in place policies and procedures that eliminate obstacles to participation by the diverse people who live and work in Pennsylvania. The task force’s goal is to foster a culture of equity, diversity, inclusion, and access in everything the agency does, from programs offered to the staff and volunteers who deliver them.
