Did you know that you can visit the Ella Sharp Museum for free? We broke the news over on Wonder and Wander’s Instagram page, but we wanted to share the full details on The Adventure Blog, too! Keep reading for information on how to enter the museum for free!
Ella Sharp Museum Pass
So just how can you visit the Ella Sharp Museum for free? Check out the family pass from the Jackson District Library! Each branch has a pass, which means there are 11 in circulation. Head to the Jackson District Library website, and search for “Ella Sharp Museum.” Click on the pass, and you will see which passes are currently available. You can also choose your branch, put a pass on hold, and get notified when it is ready for pickup! The pass needs to be picked up directly from the library counter (and not the hold shelf).
Each pass allows up to three adults and all children younger than 18 from one household to access the Ella Sharp Museum galleries and house tours free of charge. When you check out the pass, you’ll be able to keep it for a full week!
Little and I recently visited (using the free pass, of course!), and had so much fun checking out the exhibits. Ella Sharp Museum currently has the YPOP Exhibit on display until August 14. This exhibit has a lot of items to view and even had a hands-on garden that Little loved to explore.
We also checked out the Exploration Stations, which will be available through the end of December. These hands-on stations provided fun experiences for Little, such as pretend play opportunities, animal explorations and fishing (don’t worry, the fish aren’t real!), building, and more!
The Ella Sharp Museum also had other exhibits, and Little and I both enjoyed checking them out. You can check out the current exhibits, plus get a preview of new exhibits coming soon here.
