Summer is quickly coming to an end, but it’s not too late to take advantage of the 2018 Louisville Cultural Pass. You can pick up your pass at one of the Louisville Free Public Libraries by having your library card. If you are unfamiliar with the pass here’s what you need to know:

Cultural Pass Details

Most importantly, it’s FREE! Children that are under the age of 21 can receive a pass and one parent is included with entry into each location. But, it’s important to note that you only get one adult entry per family. So, if my husband and I want to take our three daughters to an attraction that is included on the pass one of us would get in free and we would need to pay for the other adult to participate.
