EBT Card to Culture Frequently Asked Questions

What is the EBT Card to Culture Program?

The EBT Card to Culture program is a joint venture between the Department of Transitional Assistance, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and many of the best cultural institutions across the Commonwealth. EBT Card to Culture allows those receiving benefits from DTA to access museums, performances, and other cultural programing at a reduced or free cost.

 

How does it work?

Each organization is different. In most instances, when you arrive at the museum, you should show your EBT card at the ticket counter and you will receive a discounted admission price. Other organizations suggest reserving tickets in advance. Make sure to look at the discount offered before visiting the location of your choice.

 

How many people can I bring with me to the museum?

The number of people that can receive discounted admission varies by institution. This information can be found on EBT Card to Culture website or you can always call the institution directly to ask them about their admission policies.

 

If I am taking my child to the museum and they want to bring their friend, can I still receive the EBT-discounted admission?

Yes. Please note specific institution polices regarding discount caps.

 

Can I only receive the discounted admission on a certain day of the week?

When you can receive a discount varies by organization. Most organizations offer discounts during normal operations. Please reference our EBT Card to Culture website for more information.

 

How many times can I use my EBT card at a museum?

There is no limit to the number of times that you can use your EBT card, so feel free to use it often!

 

How much will admission cost with my EBT discount?

The EBT admission prices vary by institution. The specific prices can be found on our EBT Card to Culture website, or you can always call the museum directly to ask them about their admission policies.

 

*Discounts apply to Massachusetts residents only, and tickets to performances are dependent on availability. Some conditions may apply – please contact the participating organization with questions.
