Museum Council of Lancaster County Announces
Passport to Discovery:
Discover what’s in your Backyard!
This summer, the Museum Council of Lancaster County and its nineteen members invite you and your family to discover the wonderful museums in your own backyard through their Passport to Discovery program. Participating museums include historic houses, children’s museums, historic sites and science museums.
While you won’t be traveling to other countries, each museum will stamp your passport with a different image just like a real one. You will have the chance to become a Pathfinder (6 stamps), Adventurer (8 stamps) or Pioneer (10 stamps) for your efforts and can then send in your passport to be eligible for prize drawings in September. Passports can be picked up at member museums or easily downloaded from the Museum Council website.
There is no charge to have your passport stamped. Regular admission fees apply for tours and activities at each of the museums, but be sure to check your local Lancaster County Library as many of our museums participate in the Library’s Museum Pass Program.
Visit www.lancastercountymuseums.org to learn more about the Museum Council, download your passport and begin to explore the wonderful and diverse museums in your backyard.
