Library Museum Pass

The Lafayette Public Library is proud to offer the museum pass program that provides free family admission to six museums and historic sites in Lafayette Parish. Due to the success of the library’s partnership with the Hilliard Art Museum, the museum pass program now includes the following six participating museums:

• Acadiana Center for the Arts (acadianacenterforthearts.org) *new!
• Alexandre Mouton House/Lafayette Museum (LafayetteMuseum.com)
• Children’s Museum of Acadiana (cmalaf.org)
• Hilliard Art Museum (HilliardMuseum.org)
• Lafayette Science Museum (LafayetteScienceMuseum.org
• Vermilionville Living History Museum & Folklife Park (Vermilionville.org)

The free family admission pass is currently available for anyone with a valid Lafayette Public Library card to check out from any library location. The pass is good for a one-time family admission and must be used within seven days of being checked out. Only one pass may be borrowed at a time and the library card holder must be in good standing with the library. (Please Note: The Library Museum Pass will be honored as a regular family admission pass but may not be applicable for certain museum special events.)

“The Lafayette Public Library is constantly looking for new ways to provide educational opportunities to our patrons,” states Keith Guidry, Community Relations Coordinator.  “This partnership with six of the finest museums in Lafayette Parish expands the quality of our services as well as access to the arts. It removes all barriers of cost. This program benefits everyone involved ‒ but most importantly ‒ the people of Lafayette Parish.”

You may call the Lafayette Public Library to reserve a pass, or visit any library location to check one out at the circulation desk. Patrons will not be able to place an online hold on a museum pass.
