Museum Pass Program Has Begun!

Mid-Continent Public Library, the City of Independence, and the Jackson County Historical Society launched the MCPL Museum Pass as a pilot program in a selection of branches on April 1, 2019. The program provides complimentary admission to select Independence attractions and museums.

The following museums participate on a seasonal basis:


How does it work?

MCPL cardholders who are 18 years of age and older can 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.
  • Museum Passes may be returned to any MCPL branch. Passes must be returned 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?

At this time, a set of Museum Passes (one per attraction) are available for checkout at the following MCPL branches:

This program is made possible through a partnership with the Independence Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Department.
