Museum Passes Update!

Lots of museums have opened for appointments and limited capacity, and most of them are still allowing discount passes from our library to be used!

However, please keep in mind that every museum has different rules and procedures and advance planning is highly recommended!

So far most patrons have been successful in reserving times to visit museums and use our passes, however we have run into roadblocks a few times as well that require us to contact the museum which causes extreme delays in the process.

Please contact us or the museum well in advance before booking a trip so we can try to get you that discount!
