About the Program

The Public Library Museum Pass Program provides an opportunity for communities to offer their residents discounted admission to the Museum at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. Most communities enroll in this program through their town public library where the passes are made available to their residents. Through the Museum and other educational and community programming, the Public Library Museum Pass Program presents the opportunity to learn more about President Kennedy, his administration and the times in which he lived.

Communities receive discounted admission passes and notification of public events through the program. By participating in the program, they also help support the many vital programs sponsored by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

Museum Passes

Each enrolled public library will receive a digital pass, which may be issued to their patrons. The digital pass allows up to eight admissions to the Museum at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library each day with a co-pay of $3.00 per person. Admission for children age twelve and under is free. The Public Library Museum Pass Program annual enrollment fee is $250.
