Museum Adventure Pass


Visit your Waukegan Public Library, then visit an area museum for FREE!  The Museum Adventure Pass offers free or reduced admission to some of Illinois’ most popular attractions, including the Brookfield Zoo, Chicago Botanic Garden and the new Bess Bower Dunn Museum of Lake County in Libertyville!

To get your free museum pass, visit the Adult Reference Desk at the Main Library anytime during library hours. Quantities of passes are limited and given on a first-come, first-served basis. Some important things to remember about your Museum Adventure Pass Program:

  • 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.
  • Due to limited supply, passes may only be checked out by Waukegan Public Library cardholders. If your library card was issued by another library, call or visit your home library for more information on the Museum Adventure Pass Program.
  • Different museums offer different privileges with your Museum Pass. Some offer free admission for one person, others free parking, and still others offer free admission for the whole family. Visit the Adult Reference Desk or for more details.
