It's true -- New York City has an amazing selection of museums. From The Met and The Whitney, to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, there is so much to see. And now, NYC library members can have access to over 30 of NYC's museums -- for free.

How Does it Work?

Having a library card is the first step to free access. You must have a library card, or you are not eligible for free passes. However, that's not all you need. You must register online at the museum you're interested in for a pass. Once you're registered an have your pass, you'll need to present it via your phone or printed before entering the museum. You can get a pass here.
