Do I need my library card to pick up the pass or go to the museum?

Yes, When you pick up the pass from the library you will need to present the library card that you used when reserving the pass.

Bring your library card with you to the museum in case they ask to see it.

Where do I return my physical pass?

  • Physical Passes must be returned by 11am the day after the day of use. Passes due on Sundays must be returned at 1 p.m.
  • Physical passes must be handed to a library staff member inside the building. Please do not put the pass in the book drop.
  • Printed or digital Grounds for Sculpture and Academy of Natural Sciences passes do not need to be returned, they can be destroyed after use.

Can I cancel my reservations?

Reservations can be canceled up to two days before the “Day of Use”. You can cancel by calling 732-572-2750. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will be considered a “No Show”.

What is a “No show”?

If you do not pick up your pass by the “Day of Use” it will constitute a “No Show”. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use” it will also be considered a “No Show”. Because demand for passes is extremely high, two “no shows” in a 60 day period may result in a 2 month block on museum pass reservations.

What is the late fee or replacement fee?

  • Late Fee: $25.00 late fee each day the pass is past due. Maximum fine will be equal to the pass replacement cost.
  • Lost Fee: Full replacement cost of the pass.
