It's so great that libraries offer this opportunity to borrow a museum pass!
The pass covers regular admission. (Equivalent to Family admission of $30)
Pass is not valid for special / featured exhibition(s). You have to pay the full price (admission + special exhibition, for example $50 for Family).

I tried w/o success to get one of two passes today (April 10). Both were gone by the time I reached the branch. Tracking down any of the 66 passes is a real problem! A courtesy hold would be a very good idea? That way we could avoid unnecessary trips to a branch - ony to learn the passes are gone! Here are my other suggestions:
- one pass per cardholder. Currently, the OPL allows 2 = 4 persons. This makes no sense;
- limit the duration to 3 days. This would double the # of passes available;
- better manage the 66 passes in circulation. Some of them have been signed out since Feb 1 (time to replace?), others are "in mending". Why??

Is this pass good for ONE person only?

You should be able to put a 24 hour hold or 1 hour hold on this item so your not racing around town.

It would be great if we could place a hold for the passes rather than running from one location to another hoping to still find the museum pass before another user gets it.

Agreed.
Three days seems more than adequate to make the trip. Might also suggest that libraries try to pair the passes up at locations, so that if a couple of friends wanted to go together, it would be more convenient to collect them.

Don't get me wrong-it's great that the library offers these. The National Gallery is a beautiful and culturally rich place. However, the way the passes are given is unproductive. I do not understand why we can't place a hold on the pass or at least get a notification as to when they arrived. I had to go to two libraries to get one; I missed the pass the first one by 3 minutes, according to the librarian. Also, why isn't there more in town? (and I live in the suburbs). And why can you keep it 7 days? 3 days at the maximum is ample time in my opinion.

Also, be warned that it only covers the regular exhibits; you have to pay full price if you wish to see the temporary ones. Still, the pass is great.

The only passes available are located at branches in rural branches.Please consider placing more passes at the Main branch so families living downtown can access.
