Museum Passes

Thanks to a generous donation we are able to provide our community with free passes to the Grounds for Sculpture museum and sculpture park in Hamilton, NJ.

If a pass is not available on the date of the reservation because it was not returned on time by the previous borrower, we regret that we will be unable to fulfill your reservation. Thank you for your consideration of others who are waiting to use the pass.
