Get discounted admission with your RI EBT card!

For your convenience, we’ve organized our free and discounted museum admission list alphabetically by city. Museums with green titles are Museums for All participants, which accept EBT cards from all 50 states.

Your Rhode Island EBT card can be used at any Museums for All partner in any other state! Check out our lists for nearby Connecticut, Massachusetts and the rest of the United States.
