What are They?

A Culture Pass provides FREE admission for two people at participating museums, zoos, and cultural institutions.

One pass = two free admissions

  • Passes are limited to 1 per cardholder at a time and no more than 3 in a 30-day period. 
  • They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Passes cannot be placed on hold, renewed, or sent to another library. 

How Do They Work?

  • Look for the Culture Pass program display on the first floor of the library.  It is part of the triangle display.
  • Find the laminated card for the destination you would like to visit.
  • Take the card to the checkout desk.  You cannot use the self-check for these passes.
  • Upon checkout,
    • The Culture Pass stays in the library; and
    • Staff will give you a due-date slip admitting two people for one visit to that museum or cultural institution during the following seven days.  You do not need to return the slip; it will expire on its own.

You can check availability of Culture Passes in our catalog; just search for “Culture Pass Embry-Riddle Library”.

The Culture Pass program is made possible through the generous support of the Act One Foundation.
