Museum passes are reserved by the day using your library card number.  You will still need to come into the library to pick up the physical pass before you make any additional reservations with the museum. Please plan accordingly.


Some museums still require an additional timed reservation in addition to your library pass. The requirements for each are listed below. Be sure to visit the museum's website and make these arrangements before you go. 

Our passes are for Rice Public Library cardholders only. They are not available to patrons from other Minerva libraries.


If you have any questions about booking or picking up passes, call Katie at 207-439-1553 x1.
