Museum Passes

  • Museum Adventure Pass

    The Museum Adventure Pass offers free or reduced admission to some of Illinois’ most popular attractions, including the Brookfield Zoo, Chicago Botanic Garden, LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Schaumburg, and KidsWork Children’s Museum in Frankfurt!

    To get your free museum pass, come to the Bradley Public Library or request online at  https://www.museumadventure.org. Quantities of passes are limited and given on a first-come, first-served basis. Some important things to remember about your Museum Adventure Pass:

    • This service is available to Bradley Public Library cardholders. If your library card was issued by another library, contact your home library to see if they participate in this program or search the Museum Adventure Pass website for participating libraries.
    • Passes are valid for one week from the date they are checked out. If not used within one week, your pass will automatically expire.
    • Each family may check out only one pass per week.
    • Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable. Your name will be printed on the pass, and you may be asked to show identification at the museum.

    Different museums offer different privileges with your Museum Pass. Some offer free admission for one person, others free parking, and still others offer BOGO free admission. Visit www.museumadventure.org for more details.
