Museum Passes Available at the Library!

Have you been to the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park? If not, this is your chance! Thanks to a donation from the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park, KS, Cass County Public Library patrons can try out everything the museum has to offer for FREE! This incredible service will be available to patrons starting this month. Be sure to call your local branch to check availability. We only have a limited number, and the passes cannot be held for patrons.

Patrons can check out a Family Membership pass from their local library branch. Each pass is good for up to 4 family members and is valid for 3 days, making it perfect for a low-cost weekend excursion. While the pass will get your family into the majority of exhibits, some exhibits may cost an additional fee.

When you check out a museum pass, you will receive a receipt with the pass’s number on it. KEEP THIS RECEIPT as it is your admission to the museum. Then, grab the family and head out to the museum. Show them your receipt and explore the museum.

The Museum at Prairiefire hosts a Discovery Room for children ages 3-12, a Science Happy Hour, and a Little Explorers Club. In addition, you will see stunning artifacts from national and regional collections, and two amazing Virtual Reality Experiences.
