The New York City Public Library System offers free admission to places like the Brooklyn Museum, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Museum of the Moving Image, and more!
Cardholders at the New York, Queens, and Brooklyn Public Libraries can now go online and download day-long Culture Passes for free entry into 79 cultural institutions–12 more than last year!
Some other participants in the program include but are not limited to:
- Bronx Music Heritage Center
- Brooklyn Botanical Garden
- MoMA PS1
- Staten Island Museum
- Whitney Museum of American Art
Anyone can input their library card number on the Culture Pass website to reserve a date at any of the 79 participating venues.
The savings will add up for those who take advantage of the program as some of these museums can cost upwards of $25 for entrance. So if you live in the city and want to finally experience some of our cultural gems, this is your best chance.
That said, only a certain number of passes may be available for a given date so you’ll need to reserve as early as possible, and a cardholder can have only four active reservations at a time; however, there is no limit as to how many times one can use Culture Pass.
The only limitation is that you can only access each museum for free once in the year, so make the most of every visit!
