Cultural Pass

This year, we’ve partnered with Louisville Metro Government, Churchill Downs, Louisville Free Public Library, Fund for the Arts, and Arts & Culture Alliance to bring our patrons the popular Cultural Pass!

The Cultural Pass is your ticket to nearly 50 arts and culture venues in the Louisville Metro area, including Actors Theatre, Bernheim Forest, Frazier History Museum, Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium, The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, Kentucky Derby Museum, Kentucky Science Center, Louisville Zoo, Speed Art Museum, StageOne Family Theater, Yew Dell Botanical Gardens, and more!

According to the Fund for the Arts, the Cultural Pass has three intended objectives for the youth in our area:

  1. Impact summer learning loss by creating a learning experience through programming, activities, and education.
  2. Establish a life-long relationship between Louisville’s children and the art and cultural institutions.
  3. Work to address barriers that may prohibit children from accessing the city’s art and cultural venues.

Youth ages 0– 21 are eligible for one pass, which is valid for one-time general admission at each participating institution (some restrictions may apply). Free admission is also available to one adult per family when accompanying one or more children under 16. Plus, youth who visit five or more participating venues are eligible for prizes! Passes are valid June 1st–August 11th.

Eligible parties may pre-register for the Cultural Pass now at Passes will be available soon for pickup at any BCPL location by the end of the day on Friday, June 1st.
