The Miami-Dade Public Library System is offering its cardholders free admission to seven of Miami-Dade County’s premier tourist attractions this summer.
This Museum Pass Program celebrates the library system’s 40th anniversary and creates opportunities for more than one million local residents to enjoy an economical summer staycation.
The library’s “partners” in the program are the Deering Estate at Cutler, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, HistoryMiami, Miami Art Museum, Miami Children’s Museum, Zoo Miami, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
All of the library system’s 48 branches are participating. To check out a museum pass, see a staff member at your nearest branch library as soon as possible. The number of passes is limited and the number of cardholders eligible to request them is 1,084,583.
Just like checking out a book
Assuming that a pass is available when and where you want to visit, you’ll use your library card to check it out – just like a book.
The pass is good for one visit at one museum for a family of four, and is valid for seven days from the time you check it out. It isn’t renewable and can’t be reserved. You can check out only one pass at a time, but if you plan your requests and visits systematically, you may be able to visit several of these attractions in the course of the summer.
The individual attractions may have additional rules, including blackout dates when the passes aren’t accepted, and separate admission fees for special events and exhibits.
