Museum Adventure Pass
Adults can check out free passes for local museums and other special places like the zoo! If you have a Fountaindale library card, go to the Information Desk to ask for a pass. Macy's paid for this special program that lets library users visit museums for free or at a discount. There are a few rules to follow. Passes are limited to one adult per household per week. You must bring your library card to the desk when you ask for a pass. You will also need to bring a photo ID, your library card, and the pass when you go to the museum. Each pass can only be used one time. Visit the Museum Adventure Pass website, or go directly to this link to find out which museums are participating and what kinds of passes they offer.
Museum Free Days
Are you disappointed that your favorite Chicago museum isn't included in the Museum Adventure Pass program? You still might be able to visit for free. Check this list of free days from the city's official tourism site. You may want to call the museum before you visit to double check the information.
