Museum Passes


2016 – 2017 Museum Passes

This program is funded by the Friends of the Joshua Hyde Public Library. Consider joining today to support this and other great programs! We are currently offering passes to the museums and attractions shown below.  Click on the pass of interest to see more details. See the Museum Pass Program Rules below.

The fall is typically when we renew the individual museum passes. We try to maximize the benefit of this program by considering the usage level of the passes, their costs to renew, and the amount of the benefit the pass provides. Please make suggestions on the passes you would particularly like to see put into the list.
