Our partnership with the Macy’s Museum Adventure Pass program has been very popular! Since it started this spring, we issued 321 passes to 18 different special attractions. We thought the program might end at the end of the summer, but it turns out that we will stay partners through August 31, 2011! If you would like to get a pass, please ask for help at the circulation (checkout) desk.
I recently found out about another opportunity to visit museums for free. Smithsonian Media is offering tickets by e-mail (two tickets per family) to visit participating museums on September 25, 2010. Go to smithsonianmag.com/museumday to find out what museums are participating and to have tickets sent to you. Some of the nearby museums participating in Museum Day are different from the ones you can see with a Museum Adventure Pass, so this is a good opportunity to visit someplace new!
