The San Antonio Botanical Garden has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits.

The program supports those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits visiting the Botanical Garden for a reduced admission fee of $3 per person, up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. Museums for All is part of the Botanical Garden’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all.

“The Botanical Garden is proud to join Museums for All and provide a pathway that alleviates the financial barrier for our working families. We strongly believe that every member of our community deserves the opportunity to connect to the natural world and experience all the Botanical Garden has to offer,” said Melinda Cerda, interim director.

The Museums for All admission includes access to the Botanical Garden’s 38 acres of garden space, including the Family Adventure Garden with 15 fun spaces that encourage unstructured play and exploration. Visitors enjoy colorful floral displays, true to Texas native areas, and futuristic glass pyramids filled with exotic plants from around the world. As a living plant museum, the Botanical Garden is dedicated to the collection, cultivation, preservation and display of a wide range of plants.
