*MOSAC proudly participates in Museums for All! This Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) program seeks to remove access barriers to museum admission nationally and encourages lifelong museum habits. Visitors who present their SNAP EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Electronic Benefit Transfer) and a valid, matching photo ID are welcome to enter the museum FREE of charge. This program supports up to 4 people per general admission visit and does not extend to special events or programs.

*Museum staff and AAM members (including volunteers, interns, and educators from museum-affiliated schools) with valid museum ID or AAM membership card receive free admission plus one additional guest. Staff from historic sites and monuments do not receive free admission.

Available Daily Tickets

Tickets can be purchased in advance online and in person on the day of your visit. A complimentary UC Davis Multiverse Theater show is included with your general admission. On the day of your visit, please inquire at the Admissions Desk about show times and reserving a theater seat.

Please note, all visitors including members are limited to one Multiverse Theater reservation per visit – thank you for helping us ensure that as many visitors as possible can enjoy a show.

Admission Tickets can be refunded or rescheduled with 24 hour advance notice. If you are unable to use your tickets on the day of your visit due to illness, your tickets can only be rescheduled on that day. Please call 916-674-5000 or email info@visitmosac.org for assistance.
