Museum Pass Program

Look for Explore More IL to launch April 2019!

Explore More Illinois:

Makes it possible for member libraries to offer free passes, discounted admission, and other deals from a wide variety of Illinois cultural attractions to library cardholders.

This program will be provided as a service to our member libraries, and there will be no cost for Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) libraries to participate.

Explore More Illinois is a new program developed and managed by RAILS. It is separate and distinct from the Museum Adventure Pass administered by Libraries First.

How it works

Cardholders will reserve all passes/discounts online. Libraries will not need to manage and administer physical passes.
