Museums for All

We believe art should be accessible to everyone. Your admission fee supports our exhibitions and programs. But to encourage more people to visit and visit often, the MCA has a pay-what-you-can policy—no one will be turned away.

We also offer suggested admission of $3 each for up to six individuals when visitors present their LINK (EBT) Card as part of the Museums for All program.

The MCA is a proud participant in the Museums for All program, another way to increase access to the museum. Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between ACM and IMLS that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. By removing the financial barrier, Museums for All also removes the social and academic barrier children face when they are not exposed to high-quality museum experiences.
