After a long hiatus, the Museum Pass Program returned in July 2021 with institutional passes to The Frick Collection, The Guggenheim Museum, The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of the City of New York. The museum pass program continues to be very popular among our patrons as they can visit these cultural institutions for free with their GPL library card!

With support from the Friends of the Greenburgh Public Library, GPL expanded its museum offerings in 2022 to add five new institutions and passes: The Empire Pass for NYS Parks, Westchester Children’s Museum, Storm King Art Center, Hudson River Museum, and the Jewish Museum, bringing the overall total to ten institutions!
