Museum Pass Program Has Begun!
Mid-Continent Public Library, the City of Independence, and the Jackson County Historical Society are collaborating to launch a new pilot program called the MCPL Museum Pass beginning April 1. This program will provide complimentary admission to select Independence attractions and museums through the end of 2019.
What museums are participating?
- Vaile Mansion
- National Frontier Trails Museum
- The Chicago & Alton Railroad Depot
- The 1859 Jail and Marshal’s Home and Museum
- The Bingham-Waggoner Estate
- Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum*
How does it work?
Beginning April 1, MCPL cardholders who are 18 years of age and older will be able to check out a Museum Pass for up to one week. Each Museum Pass includes a voucher valid for four adult, senior, or child admissions to one specific Independence attraction. Passes are valid for general admission only.
- Cardholders may only check out a Museum Pass to one attraction at a time.
- Museum Pass vouchers will be available for checkout in person on a first-come, first-served basis, and a checkout cannot be renewed.
- Each Museum Pass can only used one time at each attraction. The attractions track the pass number presented at the beginning of your visit.
- Following the customer’s visit to the attraction, the Museum Pass must be returned to the branch where it was checked out by the end of the seven-day checkout period.
- Fines and fees will apply for late or lost Museum Passes.
Where can I check them out?
Beginning on April 1, each of the following MCPL branches will have a set of Museum Passes (one per attraction) available for checkout:
- Blue Springs North
- Blue Springs South
- Midwest Genealogy Center
- North Independence
- North Oak
- South Independence
- Woodneath Library Center.
*The Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum closed for renovations in July 2019. When it reopens museum passes will become available again.
