Some of the passes permit free admission, while others offer discounted admission. Our passes are available to Cheshire residents only on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations of any kind can no longer be taken. Patrons will be able to select museum passes from any that are available at the library at the time of their visit.
You may borrow 2 passes at a time. Passes are available for check out on a first-come basis. There is no age restriction for borrowing passes. They are due back the following business day before closing. All of our museum passes have been donated as gifts to the community by the Friends of the Cheshire Public Library.
The overdue charge is $2.00 per day. If a pass is lost, the borrower will be liable for replacing it at full cost. Prices and hours are set by the museums and are subject to change. Some museums close for special events. Please call ahead for exact hours, or check the museum’s website.
