Museum Pass at the library

Thanks to sponsorship from the Peoria Riverfront Museum’s Visionary Society, Morton Public Library cardholders can now borrow a pass to the Peoria Riverfront Museum! The library has one pass which is available to be checked out on a first-come, first-served basis to patrons with a valid Morton Public Library library card.

The pass can be used on the day of checkout or the following day. The pass includes general admission* to all exhibits, galleries, and daytime planetarium shows for two adults and their children or grandchildren.

Passes cannot be reserved or checked out online or over the phone. Passes must be checked out in person at the library’s Check Out Desk. Please visit the library to find out current pass availability. Library staff will be able to check if it is available and also check out the pass.

Please note that passes are non-transferable. Borrowing patrons will be asked for photo identification and their library card to gain admission to the museum.

*Covers admission to the galleries and planetarium. Additional charges for special exhibits (such as Mystic Creatures) or giant screen theater shows may apply. Children and grandchildren must be under age 18.
