The Museum Adventure Pass

Now in its second year, the Museum Adventure Pass offers free admission passes to over 25 Metro Detroit area museums. More than 100,000 people used this program to visit local museums in the first year.

The Detroit Institute of Arts, the Ford Rouge Factory Tour, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) are some of the many museums included in this program.

How does it work? It’s simple.


  • Go to your local library (check to see if your library participates).
  • Check out a museum pass just as you would a book, with a valid library card.
  • The passes are good for either 2 or 4 free admissions, depending on the museum.
  • The pass is good for one week.
  • You don’t need to return the pass to the library
  • The pass is for general admission only, special events or exhibits aren’t included.

See, it’s so easy! So, I’m going to grab that husband of mine and we’re going to hit up as many of these museums as we can over the summer. I’ll then post on each one. We have a planned trip to the library tomorrow, hmm, which one will be first?

I have friends who used this program last year and loved it! It worked just great when a couple of friends and I went to the Cranbrook Institute of Science--they used the pass and I used my membership to get in.
We've got memberships to most of the area museums, but it's certainly a good way to try something new--so thanks for reminding me to check the list to see if there is anything there we don't already have passes for.

Let me get a plug in for the Museum of Museum of African American history and the Arab American national Museum (They're on the list) They are often overlooked. Give 'em a try!

Thanks for the comments Dominique and Tim! I think we might check out Cranbrook first, the grounds are so beautiful and the husband hasn't seen them yet. I'm just bummed that Cranbrooks' Art Musem is now closed until fall.

Oh, and thanks for the tips, Tim. I've heard wonderful things about the Charles Wright Museum of African American History.
