Check out the Museum Adventure Pass program! Bring an Aurora Public Library card to any library location where staff can check pass availability to a variety of Chicagoland suburban museums (Chicago’s large museums are not part of this program). The library is provided a limited amount of passes to each museum, so only one checkout per family is allowed at a time on a library card in good standing. Passes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
