The AADL in a first-of-its-kind partnership with Greater Detroit Macy’s, the Library of Michigan Foundation, Detroit metro area libraries and the Cultural Alliance of Southeastern Michigan is pleased to announce the launch of “Museum Adventure Pass,” presented by Macy’s.

The program is a partnership between 162 metro area libraries and 25 local arts and cultural organizations, and provides Greater Detroit area library card holders free passes to local museums, cultural centers and historical sites. It is designed to enhance the learning experience for people of all ages through books and other library materials, while at the same time provide access to arts and cultural organizations.

Beginning October 25th, AADL library card holders can receive free admission for either 2 or 4 people to 25 of Southeast Michigan’s world-class arts and cultural institutions. Passes are limited to one at a time per card holder. A limited number of passes are available at any given time at each AADL location and they’re available on a first-come, first-served basis only.

There's one Ann Arbor museum on this list: the Exhibit Museum of Natural History on the UM campus.

Participation is open to all museums and libraries in southeast MI and all were invited.


What an awesome program, and a great opportunity to see area attractions--for free! There are a few places I've been wanting to go (Ford rouge tour, Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, and Cranbrook House & Gardens), but was putting off due to cost (entrance fee combined with gas prices), but now I can go! Hooray!

Edward, the Ypsi Historical Museum is also local, and a pretty neat place. They'll be decorating for the holidays!

Will this be renewed for 2009/2010?
