The free passes include six different museums. Where will you go?

The list of available passes includes museums across Long Island and New York City, from the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn to the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City. We want to hear from you: Will you take advantage of the deal, and if so, where would you go?

Yes, most definitely. I am taking my grandson to the Cradle of Aviation museum. The tickets would have cost me $26!

This is wonderful! Thank you Riverhead Free Library!

we are definitely going to use the Botanic Gardens, Intrepid, and Parrish Art passes. We've been to the Cradle of Aviation and it's great but not one of those places we want to go again and again. We might use the CMEE passes, too--I'll have to ask the kids if they still have fun there :) I was very excited about the Guggenheim passes, but I see they're only for adults, which is a shame. But I guess a discount's a discount, so I'm sure I'll reserve those, too. Thanks for doing this--what a great service! I've always been jealous when friends told me their library has this feature so I'm glad we do, too.

Jen, children under 12 can enter the Guggenheim for free. So, yes, reserve that one too!

Yes. Ive been waiting for them to follow other libraries lead! I hope they expand it to include the aquarium for local families who may not want to/cannot travel. Thanks libray!!

Lisa, we wanted to include the aquarium, but they declined to participate at this time.

that's great about the Guggenheim! The last time I went there I didn't have kids....thanks for letting me know.
