NORFOLK, Va. - Access to Nauticus’ STEM to STERN education programs, exhibits, and the historic Battleship Wisconsin will now become more affordable for people of all backgrounds.

The museum has joined the program Museums for All.

Nauticus now offers general admission pricing at $3 per person, up to four people in a group, for those with a SNAP EBT card (from all 50 states) or Virginia Medicaid card with photo ID.

Nauticus joins over 25 Virginia museums to participate in Museums for All. This program helps expand access to museums and raises public awareness about how museums in the U.S. are reaching their entire communities.

“Regardless of income, everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the joy and inspiration that Nauticus and other cultural institutions have to offer,” Nauticus’ Development Director Rehn West said. “We’re proud to participate in this program and open a door to learning and history to our most vulnerable population of children and families.”
