1/2 price admission on Tuesdays

Pennsylvania Access/EBT card holders receive general admission for up to four people for only $1 per person. Cardholders must show an Access/EBT card in their name and a photo I.D. in the same name at the admissions desk to receive this discount. Visitors may not use another individual's Access/EBT card to receive a discount.

Any time you visit the Mattress Factory, your museum admission may be applied toward the purchase of any membership. If a membership is purchased within one week of the date of your receipt, a $15 admission credit will be applied. You must present your receipt to receive the discount.


While we do not require groups to schedule a museum guide for their visit, we ask any group over 10 to let us know in advance when they will arrive so we can ensure a pleasant experience. Groups must call at least a week in advance to be eligible for the  group admission rate. Weekends are busy at the museum, so large groups that show up unannounced may be asked to split up or wait to enter the galleries until other visitors depart. For information on scheduling your group visit please click here.
