Discounted Museums Admission

As mentioned earlier, your EBT Card gives you discounted or FREE access to museums and other great family-friendly places. We have compiled the list below for your convenience.

The Idaho Museums listed below all offer individual admission fees ranging from FREE to $3.00 to individuals and families who have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, and a valid form of photo ID.

The offer covers up to four individuals per EBT card, which means that if you have a family of 4, you can use your Idaho Quest card to get the special discounted rate or the free admission for all four members.

These rates are available during all normal operating hours. We advise that you call the museum first before you go – so that you can find out what their special rate is for EBT Cardholders (whether it’s free admission or $3).
