SNAP card holders can visit the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi for free. The program is in association with Museums for All, a national program that encourages people of all backgrounds to visit museums.

“The cost of museum admission can be a barrier for many low-income families,” states the Museum for All website. “With a year-round open door policy, Museums for All invites low-income visitors to feel welcome at cultural institutions.”

More than 600 institutions in 48 states participate in the initiative.

Museum visitors that present a SNAP food assistance Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card at the admission desk in the Corpus Christi museum will be able to bring in four people, including the card holder, for a free visit.

Along with its permanent collection, the museum usually has several traveling or temporary exhibits for limited periods of time. Currently on display are:

The museum’s permanent collection contains 1,850 works, including paintings, photographs, sculptures, glass, ceramics, crafts, and large-installation pieces. Works are rotated on a regular basis.

The Art Museum of South Texas is located at 1902 N. Shoreline Blvd. in Corpus Christi. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. The museum is closed on Mondays.
