Culture Pass

Effective October 24, 2012 the Culture Pass is no longer available.

The Culture Pass has arrived in Arizona and we couldn’t be more excited. What is this “Culture Pass,” you ask?

Starting on April 1, it’s your ticket to local museums, the Phoenix Zoo, and other must-do attractions (like Desert Botanical Gardens and The Arizona Science Center) FREE. FOR SEVEN DAYS. FOR FOUR PEOPLE.

Here’s how it works – you pick up a Culture Pass at your local library anywhere in Greater Phoenix (that means it includes Chandler, Scottsdale, Glendale, Tempe, Mesa). The pass is good for seven days, for four people. Some of the places it gets you in:

Arizona Museum of Natural History, Arizona Science Center, Children’s Museum of Phoenix, Heard Museum,Phoenix Art Museum and more are all covered by the pass.

I know you’re asking, “What’s the catch?” No. Catch. At. All. Economic times are hard, and everyone is looking for something to do that’s free and entertaining. So a bunch of sponsors got together (including the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust and Macy’s) and decided to influence the community with arts and activity.
