***FREE FUN ALERT***
Have you heard of the Culture Pass?
All 17 locations of the Phoenix Public Library participates in the Culture Pass, which
means FREE admission for two to some really cool places in our city!
Don’t have a library card? No worries! You can go in and apply for free as long as
you bring your driver’s license to prove you are a Maricopa resident.
Here is some info about the first three places we have explored on Culture Pass list
This Urban Laboratory is open daily from 9-5 off exit 263 on I-17. If you are familiar with the Reggio
Emilia approach to Early Childhood Education, then this place will certainly spark your interest. An
authentic place to spend a few hours or even the whole day, depending on the age of the kiddos you’re with. Worth taking a tour, stopping in the café, walking or running around the grounds, and taking in the scenic vistas and distinctive culture.
Open Daily 10-5 located downtown in Heritage Square at 600 E. Washington Street. The museum offers parking validation to discount the price to park…don’t forget to spend even less money! This place can get busy so brining a homemade lunch is your best bet. Check the map for the designated food areas, as you are not allowed to eat in the galleries. There are a surplus of exciting activities, tours, and demonstrations happening here on a consistent basis. Check the website before you go!
***They close every summer to freshen up but re-open on October 1 st . This place is great and worth your visit when the doors open again. The preservation of the area’s heritage can be easily explored via the outdoor garden by way of a child friendly nature hike.
