Museum Passes

Our Museum Passes Program is back! At the moment, we subscribe to the American Museum of Natural History, The Guggenheim, The Intrepid and Storm King. If you are a Montvale resident over 18 years of age with a valid library card, you are eligible. Because of COVID-19, some of these museums have special policies and procedures for entry. See this page for instructions on how to reserve passes for the different museums. 

 

** Please note- NYC museums are now requiring proof of vaccination for visitors over the age of 13 starting Sept. 13th.  Please check with the museum you would like to visit for more information about their mask/ vaccination policy for visitors.  Thank you. **

  • Passes circulate for four days on a patron's library card. There are no renewals.

  • Patrons may reserve a pass one week in advance by filling out a MUSEUM PASS AGREEMENT and leaving a $25 cash deposit, which will be fully refunded when the pass is returned on time.

  • Reservations may be canceled at any time without penalty.

  • $5.00 will be deducted from the patron's cash deposit for every day the pass is late.

  • After one week, the patron will be blocked from taking out any of the Montvale Library's museum passes for a period of six months.

  • After two weeks, the pass is considered lost and the patron must pay a lost fee of $50. The lost fee will be waived if the patron returns the physical pass; however, the cash deposit will not be refunded.
