Free/Reduced Price Admission Programs

The Riverside Art Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America to offer free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve, from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The Riverside Art Museum is proud to be part of Bank of America’s Museums on Us program. Show us your Bank of America or Merrill Lynch debit/credit card and photo ID on the first full weekend of each month and get in free!

Museums for All is a cooperative initiative between the Association of Children’s Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences to offer a signature access program that encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum habits. Show us your Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and photo ID to receive discounted admission ($1 per person) for up to 4 people. RAM’s participation in Museums for All is part of our mission to seek, include, and welcome all.

The National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, together with its state and local member programs, supports and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so every abused or neglected child in the United States can be safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive. RAM gives FREE admission to all CASA volunteers and case children. For more information on Riverside County’s CASA program, click here.

The Riverside Art Museum is proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire to offer free admission to all “Bigs” showing their badges and their accompanying “Littles”. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire opened its doors in 2013 with the help of the Orange County agency, recognizing the mentoring void in the region. Serving more than 600 children each year in the metro regions of Riverside and San Bernardino counties, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Inland Empire has quality mentoring models that are changing lives of children in the region.
