Many of our museums now participate in our Print-on-Demand program. Print-on-Demand means that you are able to print out the museum pass from home or a local printer. These passes do not need to be returned. Simply make your reservation, print the pass, and you’re good to go! These passes MUST be presented in printed format – electronic versions (on smartphones or tablets) will NOT be accepted by museums.
