Students of University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Carlow University and La Roche University may now visit Phipps during our normal business hours without prior booking. Please have your student ID ready when you approach the admissions desk. Please note that Pitt and La Roche students only receive free student tickets during the Fall and Spring semesters. Large groups will be asked to break into smaller groups to maintain a safe crowd flow. Phipps will not honor these ticket benefits at universities where and when shelter-in-place orders are in effect.

Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Access Discount

As part of the Museums for All program, Phipps offers general admission for up to four people for $3 each with presentation of an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card from any state. Eligible parties should not complete their transactions online, and may simply arrive at a visitation time of their choosing. Guests must also present a photo ID showing the same address as the cardholder. This discount does not apply to the Port Authority ACCESS card and is not valid with any other offer.
