Act One Culture Passes: Home

Culture Passes allow people the opportunity to explore community and state gardens, museums, and attractions for free by simply checking out passes from the library.

What are Culture Passes?

Explore the Arts for Free!

The Act One Culture Pass program is a partnership between Act One, the library, and local and statewide cultural and art institutions. The Culture Pass allows:

  • Students, staff, and community members get free admission for 2 to any of the participating museums, gardens, or performances.
  • Individuals are allowed to check out 1 pass at a time, 2 passes in a 30 day period
  • Passes are good for one use within a week of check out.  

Please be aware that Culture Passes are only valid for General Admissions, any special exhibits or hours do not qualify under the pass.

How To Check Out A Pass

**IMPORTANT! Due to COVID-19 precautions, we highly encourage that you call the venue ahead of time to make reservations and check out what COVID-19 procedures are in place. Most venues are reservation only during this time.

Thank you! 

How do you check one out?

Once you have decided on a location to visit and have looked at the website to determine if a reservation is needed** fill out the Culture Pass Request Form to formally request access. 

  • If the requested pass is available: you will receive an email from the library with a receipt for access or information on curbside pick-up. The receipt is your ticket in and needs to be kept!
  • If the requested pass is not available: you will receive an email notifying you when the pass should become available and at that time you will have to fill out the form once more. 

Once you have received your emailed pass or picked up your paper pass it is up to you to make any arrangements needed to go to the venue.
