Gloucester County Library System Expands Museum Pass Program

The Gloucester County Library System (GLCS) is proud to offer a newly expanded museum pass program that now features a variety of area museums and attractions.

“If you are looking for an inexpensive outing with the family, visiting a museum is a great way to expand your cultural experience and education in a fun affordable way.”Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said. “Library cardholders can save on admission fees to over a dozen local area museums by taking advantage of the museum pass program. This is one of the many benefits available to our library members and we encourage our patrons to take full advantage of our no-cost programs.”

The museum pass program is funded by a generous donation from the Friends of GCLS, a private non-profit organization of volunteers who support special library projects and programs. The passes are available on a first come, first served basis and may be checked out for one week at a time. The participating museums are: Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, Philadelphia; Battleship New Jersey, Camden; Camden Children’s Garden, Camden; Garden State Discovery Museum, Cherry Hill; Grounds For Sculpture, Hamilton Township; Gloucester County Historical Society Museum and Library, Woodbury; Independence Seaport Museum, Philadelphia (new); Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (new); National Constitution Center, Philadelphia (new); Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Philadelphia and Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, Millville.

The number of people admitted by the pass varies according to museum policy. Detailed information may be obtained at www.gcls.org/library-services/museum-pass-program or by calling the GCLS Reference Desk at 856-223-6050.
