Summer is prime time for visiting museums and historic sites, and APL has a way for you to enjoy these locations for free! Cardholders in the Upper Hudson Library System can get free admission to 20 local and regional museums, cultural organizations, and historic sites through the APL museum pass program.
Museum passes may be borrowed for seven days and there are no renewals. The passes must be borrowed, and returned, at the same APL location. All of APL’s seven locations have a selection of museum passes, but availability varies by library.
You can check on the availability of museum passes online or by calling the APL location that carries the pass in which you are interested.
