Explore More Illinois

Free/Discounted Admission to Cultural Attractions

We are working with a company called the Quipu Group on a new online program to allow cardholders from participating RAILS libraries to reserve free passes, discount admission, and other incentives from cultural attractions in Illinois, such as museums, cultural centers, zoos, aquariums, gardens, historical societies, etc.

The program will debut in 2019. Further details will be published here when available.

If you have a library card from a library participating in Explore More Illinois, you will be able to take advantage of free/discounted admission and other deals from a wide variety of Illinois museums and cultural attractions.

This video from Quipu Group demonstrates how the pass program works for library cardholders.

We're currently recruiting Illinois cultural attractions to become partners in this program. If your museum or cultural attraction is interested in being an Explore More Illinois partner, or if you have suggestions for attractions to include, please contact info@exploremoreillinois.org.

Explore More Illinois is a new program developed and managed by RAILS. It is separate and distinct from the Museum Adventure Pass administered by Libraries First.
