Have Summer Fun on the Cheap with Museum Passes

Your public library participates in the Museum Adventure Pass program, presented by Macy's. This free program is a great way to have summer vacation fun close to home, at little or no cost. Visit the library and use your library card to check out a pass to one of 29 area museums or cultural centers. The pass, which is good for seven days from the date of checkout, allows either two or four free admissions to the museum venue. Here's a sampling of area attractions that participate in the program:

Detroit Institute of Arts
Ford Rouge Factory Tour
Edsel and Eleanor Ford House
Detroit Historical Museum
Cranbrook House and Gardens
Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

The library has a limited number of passes per week for each venue, so all passes may not be available at all times for some of the most popular attractions. In accordance with program rules, passes are issued on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be reserved in advance.
For more details and a complete list of participating museums, visit the Museum Adventure Pass web site.
