Children's Museum LogoThis pass is good for 50% off the regular admission prices for up to 4 people. Regular admission is $10.00 per person. Children under age one are admitted free. You can register to use the pass by calling 664-9715, or, by e-mailing our children's department at

The library can only give out one pass to the museum per day so book early to get your first choice. Passes are a simple paper signed by a staff member, good for that day only, and they may be picked up anytime before your visit day. Passes do not need to be returned to the library.  If you pick up a pass and then decide not to go to the museum, we appreciate a call so we can issue another patron a pass for that day.
Thank you to the Friends Group for the $500.00 yearly donation which allows us to offer this pass to our citizens.
