The Detroit Adventure Pass couldn’t be more aptly named – through October 2008, it will allow you free admission to several fantastic Metro Detroit Museums from your participating public libraries.

Included on the list of museums are: the renovated Detroit Institute of Arts, Ford Rouge Factory Tour & Henry Ford Estate, Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit and Motown Historical Museum. The list of museums is actually quite extensive.

Visit the Detroit Adventure Pass site, which is sponsored by Library of Michigan Foundation, Macy’s, and the Cultural Alliance of Southeastern Michigan, to find the participating libraries and museums.

It works like this: you check out passes from the libraries with your library card. The pass is good for 7 days, after which you must return it for some other lucky patron. Some museums allow 4 free admissions, some allow 2. But hey, it’s still free! Seems like a good idea for when school gets out this summer!

  1. Just an hour drive from Detroit is the Toledo Museum of Art which always has free admission. The museum also has a world famous glass pavilion (with glass blowing demonstrations) and has many Monet paintings, including the famous Water Lilies.
    I do want to visit the Henry Ford museum though.
