Museum Passport Program

Explore some of the Delaware Valley’s most exciting sites available using passes available from Tredyffrin Public Library & Paoli Library.
Please see our reservation page for a current list of  available passes.

With your library card it’s easy and free.

Use our NEW MuseumKey reservation system to secure available passes. Print & Go passes can be printed at home. You must bring that printout with you to the venue. For venues that do not offer print & go, you must pickup & return the passes to the library that owns the pass.

Please check the museum’s website for their latest updates, including hours open & restrictions. Timed reservations may be required at some locations.
