New Museum Passes Available

The Danbury Railway Museum is the latest addition to the Library’s Museum Pass Program. This pass, made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Library, is good for free general admission to the museum for two adults and up to four children. The Museum, located in the historic station and rail yard in downtown Danbury, offers railroad history, tours, train rides, a collection of original and restored rolling stock and opportunities for hands-on railroad work at "12 inches to the foot" scale. You can find out more about this local treasure at

We also now have available a limited number of passes worth 20% off general admission for up to four people at the new Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. The Connecticut Science Center opened in June and is the hottest new thing in fun, interactive science education for the whole family. Thanks to the Science Center for providing this opportunity for Connecticut residents to get acquainted with their exciting programs. Find out more at

Ask in Children's Services about borrowing these and passes to many other great area cultural and educational institutions.
