Just wanted to comment that I used my EBT card in January 2021 for discounted admission tickets for myself, two children and one adult to the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center. It was only $12.00 for general admission for all of us with my EBT card. I had to show my drivers license, but it was an easy process and the ticket booth clerk was super nice and helpful! We would have not been able to afford to go without the Museums For All program.
