Museums for All

Cochrane Atrium

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is proud to partner with Museums for All, a nationwide initiative that encourages museum attendance by removing affordability barriers. People who receive assistance through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) are eligible to receive exhibition tickets and memberships at lower costs.

Exhibition Tickets

Museums for All participants can purchase admission to VMFA’s special exhibitions at the reduced price of $2 per ticket with a limit of four tickets per Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. For children ages 6 and under, tickets to VMFA’s special exhibitions are free.


A yearlong VMFA Family Membership for a household, comprising one or two adults and children who are all under age 18 will cost $5 for Museums for All participants and will include the same member benefits as those listed under the museum’s General membership levels.
