Libraries in the Montgomery County Library and Information Network Consortium served by the MCLINC system have available to the public passes for admission to museums and attractions in the Montgomery County/ Philadelphia area.  These passes are checked out just like you would any other library material. These passes are not available via Interlibrary Loan–to pick up a pass, you must go to the particular branch library offering the pass. Some passes have restrictions on residency ; most passes are for a group. For specific details you must consult the MCLINC catalog.

To find these passes in the MCLINC catalog, use the following search:

Keyword search for: museum pass

Consult the individual passes in the system for availability and restrictions.

The following are available in the MCLINC system at this time (07/2017) and the ones marked with asterisks are available at the Royersford Free Public Library. (Note – this list will not be maintained current, as these passes are purchased with a limited duration and new passes are acquired from time to time; consult the MCLINC catalog or go in person to the Library for current information or to place a request or hold.)
