Museum Passes

Museum passes offer either free or reduced-price admission to nearby museums, aquariums, and zoos. You can borrow passes with your library card. Some are e-passes that provide a discount code; others are physical passes that must be returned. Our Tixkeeper page provides detailed information and web links for each venue.
