Museum Pass Program



What a great way to visit a museum! The Friends of the Library funds the Museum Pass Program for patrons 18 years and older who live in the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library Tax District. (On occasion there may be a charge for a special program, as there would be for any member of the museum.)

Review our Policies.




Patrons can Check Out a Pass FREE for Three Days!


The savings to residents borrowing a Museum Pass are substantial! For example, a visit to Mass MoCA for a family of four (two adults and two children) costs over $50.00. The Museum Pass to MassMoCA is free to the borrower. The goal of the Museum Pass program is to provide children and adults an opportunity to experience history, culture and the arts through a visit to a museum.

Passes are loaned out for 3 days, on a first-come, first-served basis to Library Tax District Residents 18 years or older with library cards in good standing. Passes may not be reserved or renewed.


All passes must be checked out at and returned to the Ask the Librarian desk. A Museum Pass is not a free ticket, but a special reusable pass that must be returned to the library. There will be a $5 per day fee for any museum pass returned after the 3 day period. The replacement cost ($100-$250 depending upon museum) will be charged for a lost museum pass.


How Do We Sponsor The Museum Pass Program?


The Friends of the Library offer the Museum Pass Program due to the success of its many fundraising activities. Our Membership Fee Donations, gifts from generous donors, revenues from the Used Book Sales and the sale of Engraved Pavers, Book Totes, Backpacks, and our Cat's Meow Collectible, allow the FOL to offer this unique service to our library patrons who live in the CPH Library District. For information on becoming a Friend of the Library, check out our Membership Page.
