Free Museum Passes with a Library Card!

Did you know you can use your KCLS library card to get free passes to local museums? To claim free passes, just go to the museum passes registration pageYou will need your library card number and PIN. 

Here are a few tips:

  • New museum passes become available every day at 2:00 pm. There are a limited number of passes and they are often claimed very quickly. For the more popular museums, you should go to the museum passes registration page right at 2:00 pm to get passes for two weeks in the future.  
  • The easiest way for you to search for passes may be to view availability of all museums by date.
  • You can find details about each museum's requirements, limitations, and other information on the museum passes registration page. Each museum is different, so be sure to read the instructions carefully.
  • If you need help with free museum passes, visit your local library or call Bellevue Library staff at 425-450-1765.

Follow the links below to check out the museums' websites and see what they have to offer. Most have free days when the museum is open to the public at no charge, so be sure to look for that information.
