The Museum Pass Program is graciously sponsored by

THe Friends of the Woodbury Public Library.

The Woodbury Public Library’s Museum Pass Program, Adult Woodbury Library cardholders in good standing can check out passes to several local institutions.  These passes circulate without charge for 7 days at a time.

Below you’ll find information on the museum passes currently available to our cardholders. For more information about how this program works, please see our Museum Pass Program Policy.  To place a pass on hold, call or stop in the Library 856.845.2611.

Why have the passes changed?

The Woodbury Public Library purchases Institutional Memberships directly from each Museum. Each Museum pass expires after one year. Due to rising costs of institutional memberships, the Library has decided to rotate our museum passes each year so that our residents may experience as many different museums as possible.

How can the library get a pass to the museum i want to visit?

Due to budget constraints the Museum Pass Program is funded solely via donations made to The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library. Please let the Library know what museum passes you would like to see in the future. You may also consider donating to The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library with a notation that you would like the money to be used towards our Museum Pass Program.

*Please note that not all museums offer Institutional Memberships to libraries.

“Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone.

This pass is valid for 6 individuals per card for free daytime general admission times. Admission includes “The Voices of Eastern State” Audio Tour, narrated by actor Steve Buscemi; Hands-On History interactive experiences; history exhibits; and a critically acclaimed series of artist installations.
