Culture Pass​

​A Culture Pass gives a library customer FREE admission for two people at participating arts and cultural institutions. Passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  They cannot be renewed; they cannot be placed on hold.

Check which Culture Passes are currently available.

Culture Pass Program displays are located in each of our 17 locations. Find a laminated card for the destination in which you're interested and take it to the checkout desk. Staff will give you a date-due slip admitting two people for one visit to that museum or cultural institution during the following seven days. You do not need to return the slip; it will expire on its own.

Passes may be limited to general admission only. Special exhibitions may not be covered, and other restrictions may apply.

Customers are limited to one pass per family at any one time, up to two passes per month.​
