Our passes provide you with the opportunity to visit area museums, attractions, and venues for free or reduced admission prices. Museum & Events passes are funded by the Windsor Library Association and George Slate & Family.
Now you can go straight to your destination without stopping at the library! Many of our passes allow for printed barcodes that museum or attraction staff can scan. Simply look for the icon next to the museum name, reserve it, and print it out up to 3 months ahead of time.
For venues that don’t have this icon, you can reserve the pass up to 3 months ahead and check it out in the library up to one day before your planned trip.
(For Events Passes, please confirm your show/game date before reserving the Events Pass on our website)
Availability: Only Windsor residents may reserve passes up to 3 months in advance. Non-residents need to use same day service. Same day service is handled on a first come, first served basis regardless of residency status. Generally, passes are used most heavily during summer months, so please consider other patrons before booking any given pass more than once during the summer.
Passes are very popular, so please cancel your reservation if you can’t make it so that another patron can enjoy a visit to the destination.
Check Out / Return: Printed passes do not need to be returned to the library. Checked out passes may be picked up after 3 p.m. the day before your visit and then returned by 10 a.m. the day after. They are not renewable. For same day service, passes may be picked up after the library opens at 10 a.m. and must be returned the following day.
Overdue & Loss: Overdue fee is $10.00 per day if checked out pass is not returned on time. Patrons are responsible for the full purchase price in the event a pass is lost. These costs range from $65 to $250.

Connecticut’s Old State House
Welcome to the home of 360-degree democracy. What does that mean? Simple: the past shapes the future. Government represents the governed. Leaders – of every kind – were once just regular people like you and me. Here at Connecticut’s Old State House – the very spot where Connecticut’s democracy was born – you’ll learn about how it was born and who made it happen.
You’ll meet people who went from ordinary to history-making by standing up for what they believed: and maybe think about where you fit in to “government by the people” yourself. And when you’re ready for a break, we have a two-headed calf, Mark Twain’s bicycle, and dozens of other pieces of Connecticut’s amazing and eccentric history for you to enjoy. That’s not just 360-degree democracy. That’s 360 degrees of fun!
The pass is valid for free admission for up to 2 adults and 2 children.
