Museums for All Admissions Program
The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is committed to providing experiences that connect and engage our guests to wildlife. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to come nose-to-nose with amazing animals and learn about our natural world. We seek to be inclusive to all members of our community, regardless of economic status or other limiting factors. The Living Desert is dedicated to providing accessibility to low-income children and families.
The Living Desert is proud to participate in the Museums for All program, which is designed to make sure everyone can experience the best museums and cultural attractions, at a low, affordable price.
To broaden access to everyone, The Living Desert is offering a special, reduced rate to SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cardholders. Cardholders can simply show a valid, SNAP EBT card and valid form of photo ID to receive a special admission price of $3.00 per person for up to 4 people.
How the program works
SNAP EBT cardholders can present a valid, non-expired SNAP EBT card that includes a signature and a valid, non-expired form of photo ID at the ticket counter to receive the $3.00 per person admission rate. The admission rate is good for up to 4 people per card.
When can SNAP EBT cards be used?
Museums for All pricing is available to all SNAP EBT cardholders during regular zoo hours, excluding all special event days, special events, and evening hours.
Admission with a valid, non-expired, signed SNAP EBT card and valid photo ID is $3.00 per person for up to 4 people per card. The SNAP EBT card cannot be used for payment. Admission can be paid with cash, debit cards or credit card.
SNAP EBT cards can only be used once per day for up to 4 general admission tickets during normal operating hours and tickets will only be valid on date of purchase. This special pricing cannot be combined with other discounts or offers or applied to advance or pre-purchased tickets. Admission is not transferrable, redeemable for cash or exchangeable for any other products or services.
Cardholders are only eligible for the special admission price, all rides, attractions and special exhibits that require a separate fee will be available at full price.
