NYC and Connecticut are home to some of the greatest museums in the country. Renaissance masterpieces, visionary modern art, and celebrations of great historical figures are an easy train or car ride away. As part of our continuing dedication to enriching the lives of our patrons, Darien Library is pleased to provide a variety of museum passes that will engage, excite, and inform you in a cultural learning experience.
To Check Out a Library Pass
You need to live in Darien, work full-time in Darien, or be a Friend at the $300 level
Passes may be picked up after 3 p.m. the day before your museum visit and then returned by 10 a.m. the day after. They are not renewable.
Late fines are $10 per day. If a pass is lost, you will need to pay the full replacement cost.
Museum passes are very popular, so please cancel your reservation if you can't make it so that another patron can enjoy a visit to the museum. Otherwise, after not picking up two passes, you'll be unable to reserve any museum pass for six months. After that, you'll be able to reserve passes again.
Some passes may not be valid to attend special events at that museum. If you have questions, contact that museum directly.
All passes are to picked up and returned to the Welcome Desk.
Please call or visit the website of the museum to verify their hours of operation.
You may reserve a pass online or call the Welcome Desk at 203-669-5239. Passes may be reserved up to 90 days in advance.
You may reserve two passes per month and no more than one at a time per household.
