Michigan Activity Pass - Fun for the Family!

Spending time with my grandkids is something I enjoy regardless of the activity or season. I try to make it a point to expose them to as many cultural activities that I can over summer vacation. Whether it is visiting a museum, attending live music performances, or seeing a historical site, summer seems like the perfect opportunity to broaden their learning experiences in a fun, organic way.

This is why the Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) is one of my favorite services offered by AADL. MAP allows cardholders complimentary/reduced admission, or entitles them to other exclusive offers for over 70 participating cultural facilities all across Michigan. The AADL has five passes per week for every participating organization. Library cardholders can print a pass from the AADL website either from home or the library. From the website, click on the "Services" tab, and then click on "Michigan Activity Pass" on the list of "Unusual Stuff to Borrow".

I always to suggest to patrons who are going on vacation to see if there are any venues listed in MAP either on their route, or near their destination to add to their itinerary. MAP is great tool to get more acquainted with our great state! You can search for the participating attractions here.


I love the Michigan Activity Pass! The only challenge is to find the time to go to all of these awesome places.

What a hidden jewel. Thanks for highlighting this service!

this is such a great program

This is an awesome service!


Can we view details (how many people are covered, and at what cost - if any) before we claim one of AADL's weekly passes for a venue?

I just printed my pass to go to the Holocaust Museum with my husband for this Sunday. We're both getting in for free and I'm really looking forward to our visit...
