The Garden City Public Library's museum-pass program offers adults and children alike the opportunity to explore the wealth of art and culture located close to home. Through the generosity of the Friends of the Garden City Public Library, the Library has added the Cradle of Aviation to the Library’s museum-pass program. The museum-pass program also includes the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; the Guggenheim Museum; Nassau County Museum of Art; and Old Westbury Gardens.
The new museum pass to the Cradle of Aviation admits two adults and two children up to the age of 18. It also includes unlimited rides on X-Ride, as well as discounts at the IMAX, Nunley’s Carousel, and the Red Planet Café.
Museum passes may be reserved in advance and checked out by an adult (18 years and older) Garden City Public Library cardholder in good standing who has signed a Museum Pass Agreement. 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.
One pass per museum per household may be borrowed 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. Further information about the Library's policies governing the museum passes is included in the borrower's Museum Pass Agreement. In addition, patrons should call the individual institution directly for hours, parking, and directions, and for the rules governing the use of the museum pass. For more information, visit the Library or contact the Reference Desk at 742-8405.
