Looking for something to do this weekend? Wadsworth Museum is FREE for Hartford Residence.
Free Museum Admission for Hartford Residents
Through a partnership with the City of Hartford and our longtime corporate partner Aetna, the Wadsworth Atheneum is proud to announce that admission to the museum is now free for Hartford residents every day the museum is open!
What is Wadsworth Welcome?
Wadsworth Welcome is a new program launched by the Wadsworth Atheneum to offer free admission to all Hartford residents. Read Director Tom Loughman’s statement about the program here.
How do I know if I am eligible for Wadsworth Welcome?
If your residential address is in the city of Hartford, you qualify.
How do I sign up for Wadsworth Welcome?
The process is simple—just like applying for a library card! Next time you visit the museum, bring one form of current and unexpired identification: either your Connecticut driver’s license or a State of Connecticut ID card. If you do not have either of the above, you may provide two of the following forms of identification (note: one must have a photo and the other your current address). There is no cost to enroll in the Wadsworth Welcome program.
- valid passport
- check cashing courtesy card
- school ID card with photo
- employee ID card with photo
- Green Card
- current month’s utility bill or mail postmarked within the past 30 days
- printed personal check
- lease or rent receipt (within past 60 days)
- tax bill or receipt
- valid car registration or car insurance
What benefits does my Wadsworth Welcome card give me?
Your Wadsworth Welcome card admits you and up to four guests for free every day the museum is open. You can find museum hours here.
