What is Culture Pass?
Culture Pass is a program for cardholding patrons ages 13 and older of Brooklyn Public Library, The New York Public Library and Queens Public Library. Using their library card, New Yorkers can reserve a pass and get free admission to dozens of NYC cultural institutions, including museums, historical societies, heritage centers, public gardens and more.
How do I get a Pass?
Log in with your library card credentials and browse for passes by date or venue. Make your reservation and print or download your pass shortly before your visit. Remember that once you print or download your pass you cannot cancel your reservation.
Located in New York City’s vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, the Rubin Museum of Art is an urban arts oasis that stimulates learning, promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of the Himalayas, India, and neighboring regions.
NY Historical Society
What does it mean to become an American? In partnership with CUNY’s Citizenship Now!, the NY Historical Society has launched The Citizenship Project, a major initiative to help the more than one million legal immigrants in the New York region become American citizens through free civics and American history classes and other educational and digital learning tools.
FREE CLASSES FOR GREEN CARD HOLDERS
Beginning summer 2017, free civics and history classes are available to help green card holders prepare for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization exam. Courses take place on-site at the New-York Historical Society at three different times—Saturdays, weekday evenings, and weekday mornings—so participants can choose the class structure that best suits their work and home life. Through these courses, made possible by generous grants from the Ford Foundation and Mellon Foundation, participants will learn about pivotal moments in U.S. history by examining objects and documents from our collections. Classes are provided in English, with Spanish-speaking educators present to provide assistance as needed.
