Museum Passes

Check-out family passes to popular museums

Art that inspires and engages, hands-on science that excites and educates, history and culture that brings past and present New York to life—all of these and more are waiting for you and your family, courtesy of the library’s museum-pass program.

Family passes to popular museums are available at the reference desk (and you may call the library to reserve them). You check them out just like you do a book, with one big difference: They’re only yours for three days (this includes the day you check them out and the day you return them).
