Museum Passes


Museum Passes:

Museum Passes are available to check out with your Library Card for a 3 day loan. Only Mechanicville School District Patrons are eligible to borrow these passes. Passes include free or greatly reduced admission. Please contact the institution you plan to visit prior to arrival in case of new operating procedures in light of COVID-19.


The Empire Pass is your key to all-season enjoyment at New York State Parks. It provides unlimited day-use vehicle entry to most facilities operated by New York State Parks and the State Dept. of Environmental Conservation including forests, beaches, trails and more. Empire Passes are available for the 2022 season, multi-year or your lifetime. Instead of paying the vehicle use fee on each visit, simply present your season pass and it waives the fee for day use entry.
