Blue Star Museums

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Stepping Stones offers free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve, through the Blue Star Museums program.

Museums for All

EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cardholders can receive discounted admission to Stepping Stones through the Museums for All program. Simply show your EBT card and a valid form of photo ID when you arrive at our Welcome Desk and pay a $3 per person admission fee (for up to eight [8] people per card, per visit).

The discounted rate is only valid during normal operating hours and does not cover special events and fee-based activities. Stepping Stones cannot process EBT transactions. The EBT card will simply be used to identify visitors as qualifiers for Museums for All.
