Museum Pass Program

Exciting changes are coming to the San Diego Public Library's Museum Pass program. Soon, the library will be launching a new, user-friendly service that will offer more opportunities to engage with the arts and culture sectors of San Diego. Our new, cloud-based platform will allow patrons access to ticketing in real time, eliminate long wait times, and provide convenience and predictability.
As a result of these changes, the library's current "Check It Out Family Museum Pass" program will be ending. We look forward to sharing more information as the new project develops. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
