ALGONQUIN – The Algonquin Area Public Library District has a new Museum Adventure Pass.

From museums that supply learners with history and culture to charming gardens – all of these and more are accessible with the new Museum Adventure Pass. Patrons may use their Algonquin Area Public Library card to receive a Museum Adventure Pass at the Youth Services Desk in the library.

With the pass, patrons will receive free admission or a discount, depending on location, to Chicago-area museums.

The Algonquin Area Public Library District has a limited number of passes for each participating organization, and each is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Passes cannot be reserved or put on hold.

One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per family, per loan period. Each loan period is seven days. Passes are not transferable. Museums may ask for identification when using the pass, and the pass will be collected during the visit.

Museum of Aviation, Arlington Heights Historical Museum, Bronzeville Children’s Museum, Brookfield Zoo, Cantigny Park, Chicago Botanic Garden, The Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn, Elgin History Museum, Elgin Public Museum, Lake County Discovery Museum, Legoland Discovery Center, Mitchell Museum of the American Indian, Naper Settlement, Oriental Institute Museum and Saint Charles Heritage Museum.
