Culture Pass Program

Note August 2020 :  The Culture Pass program has paused due to COVID-19, and will resume iin the future when the program sponsor determines it is appropriate to do so.


The ASU Library has joined other local Phoenix metropolitan area libraries in participating in the Culture Pass program.

Culture Passes are valid for general admission to the following participating institutions:

  • Arcosanti-Cordes Junction
  • Arizona Science Center
  • Cave Creek Museum (Always closed June 1–Sept. 30)
  • Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve
  • Desert Botanical Garden
  • Desert Caballeros Western Museum
  • Heard Museum
  • Irish Cultural Center
  • Phoenix Art Museum
  • Pueblo Grande Museum (Reduced Summer Hours: May 1 – Sept. 30)
  • Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
  • Superstition Mountain Museum

Culture Passes are available at four ASU Library locations:  Hayden Library, Polytechnic campus Library, Downtown Phoenix campus Library and Fletcher Library.  The passes are checked out like any other material to ASU students, faculty and staff.  Community card holders (including Affiliated Faculty) are not able to check out the passes. There are Culture Pass kiosks located at or near the Information and Check Out desk.  Each pass grants general admission for two people to the selected institution.  There are a limited number of passes for each organization. Passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis and each individual may only have one pass checked out at a time.  Passes cannot be reserved, renewed, or requested through interlibrary loan and are valid for seven days.  Passes do not need to be returned and may only be used once during the 7-day period.  Lost passes will not be replaced.  Pass availability can be verified by searching Library One Search under the title "Culture Pass".


Culture Passes are valid for general admission and are not valid during special events or for separately ticketed exhibits or activities. Please check with the venue for restrictions on the day you plan to attend.

"Performance Passes" occasionally become available, in limited numbers determined by the Culture Pass program.  These passes are for specific venues and specific shows.  

For additional information, consult the Culture Pass and the ASU Library library guide.

The Culture Pass program is made possible through the generous support of the Act One Foundation.
