What is a Culture Pass?

The program, which is managed by the Act One Foundation, is a partnership between the Arizona libraries and area museums. The Culture Pass gives cardholders free general admission for 2 people at participating organizations when they "check out" the admission at their participating library.


Select a destination to visit. Bring the laminated card to the circulation desk. THE LAMINATED CARD IS NOT THE PASS ITSELF. You will receive a date-due slip that admits 2 PEOPLE to the destination through the date printed on the slip. 

A single Act One Culture Pass may be checked out for a loan period of 7 days. Restrictions may apply, so check with the destination or venue prior to your visit.
