Your NJ Library Card Can Mean FREE Admission to Local Museums

Posted on: September 12th, 2019 by

We originally published details about the New Jersey Museum Pass Program in 2012 and we update it at least twice a year.

New Jersey Libraries’ Museum Pass Program

 

Have you always wanted to visit, Grounds for Sculpture, The Garden State Discovery Museum or the Intrepid Museum but maybe it wasn’t in your budget? Now you can thanks to your local library.

 

Many libraries around the garden state are participating in museum pass programs. The museum pass program varies from library to library so you will have to click on the links or call your library for more information. The basic way it works though is you visit your library and sign out passes to take your family to visit your favorite museums. Most libraries allow you to sign out the passes for 3 days at a time though some may require a refundable cash deposit.

 

I was super excited to find our about these programs, I can’t wait to borrow a pass from my library for one of the participating museums and take my family on an unexpected field trip.

    This sounds like a wonderful program ! However after viewing all the libraries that support and participate in the museum pass program , I am wondering why Cape May County (NJ) isn’t involved .

    How can we get our local libraries to participate. New Milford does not and when I asked they didn’t know anything about it

    • Jennifer A. says:

      Joanne, I would share this blog post with them. That may show your local libraries how many other libraries are participating in this program. Your library could then contact them for more information on how they got started. Good luck. And let us know if they do so we can add them to this list. ~ Jenn

    What a great list! I knew my local library offered a program but had no idea others did. I have a list of NJ free family resources on my website and added a link to this article. You can see it here under museums – http://www.parenthoodnj.com/free-activities-in-nj.html
