My son and his friend at the Morris Arboretum’s Tree Adventure where they got a Get a bird’s eye view of the forest from 50 feet up.

So here’s something super cool that I discovered today while trying to find out when the Camden County Library’s Voorhees branch will host its annual spring book sale. The library system offers a Museum Pass Program. Adult cardholders in good standing (with less than $5 in fines) may check out up to one museum pass at a time.  A museum pass must be returned to the same branch it was checked out from.

Take a look at all the museums and nature centers library card holders can get into for free:

  • Academy of Natural Sciences – Admission for up to two adults and five children; 10% discount at the Academy Shop and Academy Cafe
  • Camden Children’s Garden – Free admission for up to six guests
  • Garden State Discovery Museum – Admission for up to six people; 15% discount at the Discovermore Toy Store
  • Grounds for Sculpture – Admission for up to four people

The following passes are only available from the Voorhees branch:

  • Penn Museum of Archaeology – Admission for up to two people
