American Writers Museum Joins Chicago Public Library To Offer Free Admission For Families

For the first time, American Writers Museum is collaborating with the Chicago Public Library to expose children and families to the wonders of its exhibits through the Kids Museum Passport program.

The two-year program, which started June 1, partners with 19 museums in the Chicagoland area and allows a family of four access to museums during normal business hours. The group must have a child under the age of 18 and can admit two adults with each pass.

“The Kids Museum Passport is a great, free educational opportunity for families to visit the museum,” said Carey Cranston, president of American Writers Museum. “With a new exhibit opening June 22 and our always engaging permanent exhibits, there is something to see for everyone.”

The 156 free passes to American Writers Museum are available at all Chicago Public Library branches and while they cannot be reserved, placed on hold or renewed on CPL’s site, one can check online regarding which branch has available passes to check out in person.
