E-mail Print

To make the museum experience accessible to all residents, the Garden City Public Library through the generosity of the Friends of the Garden City Public Library offers free museum passes to the Cradle of Aviation, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; the Guggenheim Museum; Nassau County Museum of Art; and Old Westbury Gardens. The Library is adding a new pass to the program to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which includes The Cloisters Museum and Gardens. The new Metropolitan Museum pass admits five adults and children 18 and under. It includes access to The Balcony Lounge and Members Dining Room and discounts in the Met Store and on Audio Guides. Reciprocal membership privileges are available at 16 major art museums nationwide.

Museum passes are available only to Garden City Public Library cardholders in good standing who have signed the Museum Pass User Agreement.

Museum passes may be reserved in advance and must be checked out by an adult (18 years and older) family member. Reservations will be taken up to one month in advance of the desired date, subject to availability on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations must be done in person at the Reference Desk and will not be taken over the phone.

Only one pass may be borrowed at a time. Only one pass per museum may be borrowed per household within a six month period. The passes may be borrowed for three days and must be returned by one hour before the Library closes on the day the pass is due. The day the pass is picked up is considered the first day. The passes must be returned to the Reference Desk during Library operating hours. Passes placed in the book drop will be charged a $10.00 fee.

Late charges are $20.00 per day. In the event that a pass is not returned and the Library pays an entrance fee for the next user, that entrance fee will be added to the late fees. There is a $5.00 cancellation charge if it is less than 48 hours before the reserved date. Any user who loses a pass will be charged the replacement cost of that museum pass.

Patrons should call the museum directly for information on hours of operation, parking, and/or directions. Each museum reserves the right to determine the rules and regulations governing the use of the museum pass.

For more information, visit the Reference Desk at the Library or call 516-742-8405 x2.
