Museum and Attraction Passes

Use your Lincolnwood Public Library card to get discounted passes to a variety of museums and attractions throughout Chicago and Illinois, by using Museum Adventure Pass or Explore More Illinois.

Additionally, for Illinois residents,  many Chicago museums also offer free admission on several days throughout the year.

Museum Adventure Pass

Museum Adventure Passes provide discounted or free admission to museums in Illinois (but do not include museums in Chicago). Passes can be requested in person at the library or online.  Check out the list of attractions and the offers available. 

  • Libraries have a limited number of passes for each participating museum, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis whether requested in person or online.
  • One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per family, per loan period. The loan period is seven days and will expire after the date printed on the pass.
  • Offers vary per museum. For some, two or four people may be admitted free per pass, or by carload. If admission is free, another special discount will be offered.
