How the Adventure Pass Works

  • The Adventure Pass includes tickets and coupons to your favorite museums, zoos, and activities around town. 
  • The Adventure Pass includes activities that are valid for different months in 2024. While most activities are valid for the entire year, there are some that have specific month restrictions. 
  • Child must complete the Reading Marathon and be between preschool – 6th grade. 
  • Adults and other family members who do not have an Adventure Pass will pay regular admission prices. 
  • The Adventure Pass can only be used one time at each location. 
Please note: because of the volume of Adventure Pass recipients, we will not be able to maintain and distribute Adventure Passes once they are initially delivered.
