Borrowing a Museum Pass

Your Library card gets you and your family into one of Ottawa’s many museums and historical sites.

Bring your family and learn about Canadian history, experience priceless world-class art, find out about the heroic tales of those who fought bravely for Canada, discover enormous dinosaur fossils and experience the world’s largest indoor collection of totem poles.  Ottawa’s many national museums have something to offer everyone, no matter what your interests might be.

The loan period for all passes is one (1) week and renewing the pass is not allowed.  Please note that passes cannot be reserved – they are available to CRPL patrons on a first come first serve basis. Contact the Library at 613-446-5680 ext. 0 to see if the pass you are looking for is available. If a pass is available you may ask that it be put aside for you to come and get it. Please note, it will only be put aside for you for 2 hours.

Overdue passes will be charged $2.00 per day with a maximum fine of $20.00.  Lost or stolen cards will incur a replacement charge as well as an administrative fee.

There are new rules and regulations now that the museums are re-opened, make sure to check the museum’s website before planning your trip.

For the Ingenium museums, the following now applies:

Upon reopening in the summer of 2021, all library pass holders must book their visit to the museum of their choice at least 48 hours prior to the desired date. Passholders can reserve their space by contacting the Customer Relations team at 613-991-3044 or 1-866-442-4416.

Passes can be used multiple times and at multiple locations, if applicable.

Unless otherwise stated, the passes are good for a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children).
