Museums 4 All

New in October 2022! The Johnstown Flood Museum is proud to participate in Museums for All, which is designed to make museums more accessible to lower-income families. Any family receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits can present their SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card to receive a reduced admission price of $3 per person, up to four people.

Museums for All is an access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and is administered by the Association of Children’s Museums to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly. More than 900 museums participate in the initiative nationwide.
