Get discounted admission with South Dakota food stamps!

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. These venues accept EBT cards from all 50 states, so you don’t have to be a South Dakota resident to get these great deals!

It is important to remember that you cannot pay for admission with your South Dakota food stamps card. You will show the EBT card to receive the discount but you will need to pay the remaining admission price, if any, in cash or with a credit/debit card.


Children’s Museum of South Dakota – $1 per person

If you are receiving SNAP benefits or any kind of income-related assistance (including CHIP, Medicaid, free/reduced school lunches, Head Start, WIC, LIHEAP or TANF), you and 5 guests can visit the Children’s Museum of South Dakota for just $1.

Plan on visiting often? Spend $15 and get an Access Family Membership that offers unlimited museum admission for 2 adults, 6 children and 1 caregiver! For more information, please click here. 

Browse the museum’s exciting exhibits, including Our Prarier, Imagine a House, Kidstreet and Sensations, by clicking here.


Adams Museum – Suggested Donations Only

Although Adams Museum doesn’t specifically offer EBT discounts, this museum does offer a “suggested donation” admission. This means that, although the museum would like to receive $5 per adults and $2 per child, they are willing to accept less if you can’t afford that rate. Pay what you can afford and explore the history of the Black Hills!

Since 1855, the museum has showcased an expanding collection of specimens of minerals, mammals, marine reptiles, fish and dinosaurs. The fluorescent mineral room, meteorites and time-specific diaromas bring history and geology to life. The museum is free for everyone, not just EBT cardholders.
