Six Columbus cultural institutions are offering free or discounted tickets to families who qualify for Special Nutrition Assistance Program Benefits (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) benefits. 

Venues participating in a new program called Museums for All Columbus include Columbus Museum of Art, COSI, Franklin Park Conservatory, National Veterans Memorial and Museum, Ohio History Center, and Wexner Center for the Arts. The initiative is part of the national Museums for All program created in 2014-15 that has served more than 3 million visitors at more than 600 museums nationwide. In Ohio, nearly 50 museums are participating in the program.

Discounted admission at the six central Ohio institutions ranges from free to $3.45 per person. Prices are unique to each institution; potential visitors should visit the participating museums’ websites.
