Museum Passes Available at the Central Library

Your library card is the key to museum discounts!

The Monroe County Library System is proud to announce the V.I.P pass program, a partnership with the Memorial Art Gallery, the Rochester Museum and Science Center, the Genesee Country Village and Museum, Geva Theatre Center and the George Eastman House, which allows libraries to circulate discount passes for each of these institutions.  V.I.P stands for “Very Important Places” marking the relevance of libraries, theatres and museums to the life of the community.  Working together, our organizations are able to provide multiple opportunities for education, inspiration and enrichment to the residents of Monroe County.

Library card holders can visit a participating library, choose a pass to a museum or theatre, check out the pass and show it at the admissions desk to receive a discount.  The pass is then returned to the library for the next user.  Great discounts to great places, just by using your library card!  Horizons can be expanded by seeing a play at Geva, or star gazing at the Strasenburgh Planetarium.  An interest in technology or a love of art can be discovered enjoying the exhibits at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, or exploring the Memorial Art Gallery.  Visiting the George Eastman House, can give you a glimpse of “lifestyles of the rich and famous Rochester edition” and show how Eastman’s inventions changed the world by making photography accessible to all.  Travel back in time and experience, hands on, life in the 19th century at the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

Your library card is the key. It not only gets you access to thousands of books and DVDs, now it gets you special discounts at area museums and theatres. These passes are good through May 2013.
