The adventure begins at your local Illinois library! The Museum Adventure Pass program provides free admission or a special discount at participating Chicago Area cultural destinations. This opportunity is made possible by the participating cultural organizations, and the participating Illinois public libraries. Visit either of our Public Service Info Desks with your library card in hand and check out a Museum Pass. Museum Passes are limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. They cannot be reserved.
