NYC library members can now access 33 museums throughout the city thanks to the new Culture Pass initiative, which seeks to give equal admission to the city’s finest attractions to all New Yorkers, regardless of economic circumstances.
Getting a pass doesn’t entitle you to waltz into any museum or garden for free; you still have to register online for the day’s activities with the understanding that some venues may book up on busier days. But in most cases, you just have to pre-register and show your mobile or printed pass at the door. Some spots will let in up to four guests with the pass.
