Museum Passes

Museum Passes

The Fairfield Public Library is currently offering a limited number of passes. Please note that most reopened museums have temporarily changed their opening days and times.  Please remember to check each museum’s website for information on hours, safety measures and ticketing information before planning your visit.

We are continually adding more passes as more museums reopen and our passes get renewed. Please check back for updates.

To borrow a museum pass:

  • You must be an adult and have a current, adult Fairfield Public Library Card.
  • Loan period is 3 days. Due to demand, overdue fines are $10.00 per day; replacement cost for a lost pass varies from $50.00 to $250.00. Passes cannot be renewed.
  • Two passes per family may be checked out at a time.
  • Pass must be returned to the library from which it was borrowed. Pass must be returned inside the building and handed to a staff member, not inside a book or video drop. Passes returned in the drop are considered late and will be assessed a $10 late charge. Fines on museum passes will not be forgiven or excused in 2021.
  • For more information on passes available at the libraries, call: 203-256-3160 (Main Library) or 203-255-7308 (Fairfield Woods Branch Library).

Additional Info:

  • Please call the museum or visit their website to verify hours or to find out more information.
  • Please access our online catalog or see below to check the status of the Museum Pass in which you are interested.
  • Some passes may not be valid for special events.
  • Passes are available on a walk-in basis only. If you call us and the pass you are looking for is “IN”, we will hold this pass for you for one hour.
  • The pass may be used only once per day.
