Explore a World of Art with Your Library Card!

The Hilliard University Art Museum and the Lafayette Public Library System are thrilled to announce a partnership that allows members of the community to check out a free family admission pass.

A limited number of passes are available for check out from the library system each week. The one-time-use pass is valid for one week and provides a family household access to enjoy all that the museum has to offer. Library patrons may place a hold on a pass by calling their local branch or check one out at any library’s circulation desk. Families using the library pass will also have an opportunity to field test the museum’s new family bags that contain games and activities as prompts for exploring the galleries.
