Cultural Pass to provide children with free admission to participating Louisville museums this summer

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This summer, children will once again be able to get free admission to participating area museums and art galleries, according to Louisville Mayo Greg Fischer.

The city's Cultural Pass is returning this year.

The pass admits one child or student (ages 0 through college) to attractions as diverse as the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft to the Kentucky Derby Museum to Yew Dell Gardens. If the child is under 16, one parent or guardian is also admitted.

"We are dedicated to building a culture of lifelong learning in Louisville for everyone, from our youngest citizens to our wisest grandmothers and grandfathers," Mayor Fischer said. "The Cultural Pass as an immediate success, helping thousands of youngsters visit engaging and inspiring places they'd never been, to learn, dream and stay engaged over the summer."

The pass is valid May 31 through Aug. 7 and can be picked up at all Louisville Free Public Library branches and Metro Parks Community Centers.

Children who get their pass stamped by at least eight different institutions this summer will be eligible for prizes and other incentives, according to a news release.

This year's Cultural Pass is being funded primarily by the Gheen's Foundation, with additional support from Louisville Metro Government and an anonymous donor.
