|The Milford Public Library offers passes to a wide variety of local museums. These passes allow free or discounted admission depending on the museum. Prices and hours are set by the museum and are subject to change; there may be restrictions on special events. Please check the museum's website for current information. Passes may be checked out by any CT resident over the age of 18 with a valid card from their hometown library. Please note that to use our online reservation system, that card must be registered with the Milford Public Library or other library in the Bibliomation consortium. And please don't forget - many of our local museums, theaters, music venues and galleries are in financial trouble due to the pandemic. Please support the arts in any way you can.|
Note: In January 2022, the Library began using new software to circulate our passes. If something is not clear, or not working properly, please alert staff. Thank you!
