New Museum Partners at Your Library

The Pinellas Museum Pass Program recently added two new museum partners, bringing the total of museums available to PPLC library cardholders to seven. The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art and the Henry B. Plant Museum joined the Museum Pass Program in February and are already popular destinations for PPLC library cardholders. The Henry B. Plant Museum, housed in an 1891 Victorian railroad resort, is located on the University of Tampa campus in Tampa. The Henry B. Plant Museum is an elegant step back in time to the turn-of-the-century America. The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art (LRMA) is a contemporary art museum with more than 6,000 works from the 20th and 21st centuries in their collection. LRMA is located on the Tarpon Springs Campus of St. Petersburg College.

PPLC cardholders can checkout museum passes from one of their 24 member library locations in Pinellas County. The passes allow for FREE family admission for up to 2 adults, and 3 children. There are seven museum locations available for checkout: Chihuly Collection, the Florida Holocaust Museum, the Great Explorations Children's Museum, Henry B. Plant Museum, Imagine Museum, Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts.

How the museum pass works:

  • Each PPLC member library and its branches have two museum passes from each museum partner (except for the Henry B. Plant Museum which has a total of 6 passes countywide).
  • Passes are available for checkout on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • You may check the availability of passes by contacting your library's circulation staff.
  • When you checkout a pass, you will receive a receipt. Take the receipt with you to the museum.
  • Present the receipt from the library to museum staff upon entry. The museum will retain your receipt.
  • Admission is valid for up to 2 adults, and three children under the age of 18, in the same household.
  • Only one pass per museum may be checked out at a time. Checkout by adult cardholders only.
  • Passes are valid for one visit within the 7-day loan period. Passes are checked out for a full 7-day period, and may not be "returned" early.
