With your Alsip-Merrionette Park Library card, you can come in and check out a zoo or museum pass. We have a limited number of passes, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. (No online reservations or checkout; it must be done in person.) You can use them any time within the seven-day loan period. One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per family, per loan period.
Admission offers vary per museum. If no admission is charged, another special discount will be available. Details can be found at museumadventure.org.
Passes are typically limited to general admission, and not special exhibits or parking.
