The Indiana Access Pass is a great way for families who qualify to visit several of the best Indiana museums and cultural institutions for $2 per person.  Some Indiana museums always offer free admission, but others can be quite costly for families on a fixed budget or who need assistance.

The Indiana Access Pass

Families that participate in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), SNAP and Hoosier Works, or Hoosier Healthwise Insurance can get an Access Pass.  To receive your Access Pass, you must visit one of the participating museums with your Hoosier Healthwise or Hoosier Works Enrollment Recertification Letter (issued by the Indiana FSSA) along with your Indiana State ID.  The museums and institutions below participate in the Indiana Access Pass.
