Hoosiers can visit attractions for lower cost

Low-income Indiana families can use the Access Pass program to visit nine attractions in Bloomington, Indianapolis and Terre Haute for a reduced rate.

The pass works at Conner Prairie, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, the Indiana Historical Society, the Indiana State Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the NCAA Hall of Champions, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Wonderlab Museum in Bloomington.

To get an Access Pass, a person in your immediate household must be enrolled in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Hoosier Healthwise Insurance, SNAP or Hoosier Works. With a pass, the cost to visit each location is $2 per family member per visit, for up to two adults and dependent youth living in the household.

Documents are required to prove eligibility. Some documents can be accessed at Click on “Check Status/Print Proof of Your Eligibility.” An Indiana-issued photo ID also is required.

To enroll in or renew an existing Access Pass, visit any of the participating venues.
