The Children’s Museum of Cleveland (CMC) offers a “Museum for All” program which allows families who show their Ohio EBT card to receive a discounted admission rate of $2 per person for up to 4 people in the same household. CMC is fully ADA accessible. Families with an active military ID receive $2 off admission per immediate family member. There are no discounts on memberships to keep the cost low for all.
