Seattle Public Library Now Lets You Check Out a Museum (Pass) for Free
The Seattle Public Library‘s new Museum Pass program lets you use your library card to check out free museum passes. You’re allowed one pass per week to any participating museum, but you have to wait 30 days to go back to one you’ve already visited. (It’s one pass per library card, as well.)
So far, participating museums include The Burke Museum, The Center for Wooden Boats, The Children’s Museum, Experience Music Project (EMP), Henry Art Gallery, The Log House Museum, Nordic Heritage Museum, Northwest African American Museum, and Wing Luke Museum. The big name there is EMP since adult admission is $18 online.
The pass reservation system lets you browse by museum, or by date, but either way, you get a pass good for a particular day. You’ll need both your library card number and your PIN to make a reservation. If you don’t know your PIN, check with the library: (206) 386-4636.
