If you’re looking for somewhere new to go with your kids, a Museum Adventure Pass may be the answer.  The Museum Adventure Pass program, which began Sept. 7, is an exciting new partnership between metro public libraries, museums and other cultural organizations. Library users can check out a Museum Adventure Pass at any metro area library location and enjoy the benefits of free admission to one of many outstanding Twin Cities museums. You will receive a due date slip that becomes the admission pass for the organization you wish to visit.  Present this admission pass at the box office of the participating organization for free admission for up to four people. Each admission pass will expire within one week of checkout.  Note: Organizations that already provide free admission will offer an alternative service (i.e. a guided audio tour).

Participating Organizations:

American Swedish Institute, Bakken Museum
Bell Museum of Natural History, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakotah Life (Ramsey County Historical Society), Historic Murphy’s Landing (Three Rivers Park District), Mill City Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Minnesota History Center, Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Minnesota Museum of American Art, Minnesota Zoo, Minnesota Historical Society Southern District Sites (Fort Snelling, the James J. Hill House, the Alexander Ramsey House, Sibley House, & Oliver Kelley Farm), Science Museum of Minnesota, The Museum of Russian Art, Walker Art Center,  Weisman Art Museum.

Passes are available for check-out at the more than 100 metro public library branches.  For more information check out www.mplib.org/museumpasses.asp.
