If you’re planning a visit to one of the many great museums, parks, or zoos in the area, take advantage of the Library’s collection of museum passes which offer free or discounted admission to some of the most popular cultural destinations in Connecticut and beyond. Many of the Library’s museum passes are generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
How It Works
- Check out a museum pass using your library card and present the pass when you visit the museum to receive free or discounted admission.
- Passes can be checked out by any Connecticut library cardholder for a two day period.
- Only one pass may be checked out per family at any given time.
- Passes may not be placed on reserve, but available passes can be held for up to one hour by calling the Circulation Desk at 203-891-2170.
