Museum passes are once again available.
Not all museums have reopened, but you can now check out passes for Albany Museum of History and Art, The Empire State Aerosciences Museum, The Fire Fighting Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, Hildene, Mass MOCA, Schenectady Historical Society, and The Wild Center. Please be aware that museum hours and activities may be limited by pandemic regulations, masks and social distancing are required, and some museums may require visit reservations to control numbers on site, so calling ahead is advised.

The Friends of the Library funds the Museum Pass Program to provide children & adults opportunities to experience history, culture and the arts through a visit to a museum. The savings to residents borrowing a Museum Pass are substantial! For example, a visit to Mass MoCA for a family of four (two adults and two children) costs over $50.00.

MUSEUM PASS POLICIES
Passes are loaned out for 3 days, on a first-come, first-served basis to Library Tax District Residents 18 years or older with library cards in good standing. Passes may not be reserved or renewed. (On occasion a Museum may charge for a special program, as they would charge any member of the museum.)
There will be a $5 per day fee for any museum pass returned after the 3 day period. The replacement cost ($100-$250 depending upon museum) will be charged for a lost museum pass.
How Do We Sponsor
The Museum Pass Program?
The Friends of the Library offer the Museum Pass Program due to the success of its many fundraising activities. Our Membership Fee Donations, gifts from generous donors, revenue from the Used Book Sales and the sale of Engraved Pavers, Book Totes, and Backpacks allow the FOL to offer this unique service to our library patrons who live in the CPH Library District. For information on becoming a Friend of the Library, go to our Membership Page.
