The Museum Adventure Pass program provides free admission to unique cultural destinations throughout the Chicago area to library card holders at over 140 suburban public libraries, including the Warren-Newport Public Library (WNPL). This special opportunity is made possible by a generous contribution from the WNPL Friends of the Library and the participating cultural organizations.
Here’s how it works:
- Check out a Museum Adventure Pass using your library card at your home library. To use an adventure pass from WNPL, you must present a library card that was issued by WNPL, as well as a driver’s license or state ID. Passes are issued at the Youth Services Desk. Libraries have a limited number of passes for each participating organization. Passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Passes cannot be reserved or checked out online or over the phone. We look forward to your library visit!
- One Museum Adventure pass may be checked out per family, per loan period.The loan period is seven days. Admission offers vary per museum. For some, two to four people may admitted free per pass. If admission is already free, another special discount will be available. Details can be found at http://www.museumadventure.org.
- Passes are limited to general admission. Each organization’s page at http://www.museumadventure.org gives specific dates when passes cannot be used, and other restrictions that may apply.
- Please bring a driver’s license or state ID with you when visiting a museum using an adventure pass, as well as the pass itself.
