FREE Family Admission to ANY Museum in Chicago


The Chicago Public Library has “Museum passes” that you can borrow for admission to ALL of the 13 museum’s in the city including costly ones (over $20 pp!) like the Shedd Aquarium, The Childrens Museum, Brookfield Zoo, and the Field Museum. Each museum has one pass that covers the admission of a family of four.

All you need is a Chicago Library card (apply for free card at any public library), or a friend that has a library card, and you can go to any of over 50 branches of the Chicago library. Just go to the front desk and ask to see which museum passes are available and voila, you have a week to use it! This costs no money at all!

These passes are good for one week and more than one person at a time, but they usually do not apply to special exhibits.
