Museum Passes

Pinellas County Public Libraries are happy to offer FREE family admission with the checkout of a museum pass.

Pinellas Public Library Cooperative (PPLC) is partnered with the following museums:

Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art,
Tarpon Springs
Dunedin History Museum,
Florida Holocaust Museum,
St. Petersburg
Great Explorations Children's Museum,
St. Petersburg
Museum of Fine Arts,
St. Petersburg
Imagine Museum,
St. Petersburg
Tampa Bay History Center,
Henry B. Plant Museum,

How the museum pass works:

  • Each PPLC member library and its branches will have two passes for each museum (except for the Henry B. Plant museum which has a total of 6 passes countywide).
  • Passes are available for checkout on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • You may check the availability of passes on the PPLC online catalog or by contacting your local library.
  • Check out a pass in person, at your local library circulation desk, and take the printed receipt with you.
  • Present the receipt from the library to the museum staff upon entry. The museum staff will retain the receipt.
  • Admission is valid for up to 2 adults and 3 children under the age of 18, in the same household. No substitutions.
  • There is a checkout limit of one pass per family. Passes may be checked out by adult cardholders.
  • Passes are valid for one visit within the 7-day loan period. Passes will be automatically checked in after their 7-day loan period expires.
  • Passes are not available for reciprocal borrowers with cards from out-of-county libraries. Patrons must have a PPLC card in order to checkout a museum pass.

*Children must be accompanied by an adult, and adults must be accompanied by a child to gain admission to the Great Explorations Children’s Museum. The museum has had to turn away adults with passes because they did not have children with them.
