The DoSeum, one of San Antonio’s most beloved kid-friendly attractions has announced a new program offering reduced admission for low-income families. Under the new policy, families that receive food assistance through the SNAP program can get admission reduced to just $3 per ticket for up to four family members.
The new discounted admission for low-income families is part of the national “Museums for All” program which is aimed at making museums more attractive and accessible for all Americans. The DoSeum is the first museum in San Antonio to join the program.
Under the DoSeum’s new program, families receiving SNAP food assistance can show their SNAP/EBT card and a valid photo ID at the museum to get a reduced admission cost of just $3 per person, down from the regular $14 per person. That means a family of four can get into the DoSeum for just $12 as opposed to the regular $56.
Even if your family doesn’t receive SNAP benefits, there are still several ways you can get coupons and discount tickets to the DoSeum. Every first Tuesday of each month, The DoSeum is open for Free Family Nights from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. There are also discounts for military members, seniors, and educators, and special pricing for members and San Antonio GO Card Explorer Pass holders. Check our DoSeum guide for details on discounts and occasional rotating offers on tickets.
The DoSeum was founded in 1995 as The San Antonio Children’s Museum. In 2015, the museum transformed into The DoSeum to focus more on hands-on STEM exhibits that invite children to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The DoSeum features a wide selection of exhibits where children can learn about science, mathematics, and the world of technology in a fun, safe setting far removed from the constraints of the classroom. Whether you qualify for the new reduced admission or not, the DoSeum is a perfect place to take the family for a day of exciting hands-on fun.
