Queens residents can now visit one of the city’s many museums for free — and all you need is a library card.
Starting July 16, Queens Library cardholders can now get free admission to participating museums and cultural institutions throughout the city with the new Culture Pass, created in a joint effort by the Queens Library, Brooklyn Public Library and The New York Public Library.
Each Culture Pass will offer free entry for either two or four people to the museum of your choice. Participating museums include the Queens Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

To reserve your Culture Pass, log on to culturepass.nyc and select your library system under ‘Reserve a Pass.’ After you log in to the Culture Pass reservation system using your library card barcode/username and PIN, browse the available passes by date, location or venue.
After you make your reservation, you can print out your pass at home or for free at the Queens Library shortly before your visit. The pass can also be downloaded to your mobile device. You must have ID with you when picking up your pass and once you print out or download the pass, you cannot cancel your reservation.
Library cardholders must be 13-year-old or older to reserve a Culture Pass. Passes will be released two months in advance on the first of each month.
