Museum Passes

Due to COVID-19, some museums and other local attractions may have restrictions in place. Please check their websites or contact the museums directly to confirm hours, openings, and restrictions.

The library offers a number of free and reduced-cost passes to museums, parks, and other attractions on, and off, the Cape. We do not reserve passes in advance, but you can call the library or check our catalog for pass availability. Passes go out for three days.

Please note that while we strive to have the most up-to-date info available, the rates and discounts on the actual passes supersede any info on this page.
