Here’s a new way to beat the summer heat: starting today, you can “check out” free passes to many local museums, using the Seattle Public Library website. As if the library wasn’t already the most awesome thing known to man.
According to the SPL website, “The Museum Pass allows you to use your Seattle Public Library card to reserve and print out an admission pass to participating Seattle museums at no charge. You can reserve a Museum Pass either by venue or date.”
So far, they have passes for EMP, Children’s Museum, The Burke, The Henry, and many more. The only way this would be more awesome is if you could use your smartphone to get in, instead of needing a printer.
