Can I borrow the passes on a walk-in basis?
Usually not. This is a very popular program and the passes are booked weeks (sometimes months) in advance. However, cancellations do occur, so it is best to call us or check the museum pass calendar.
Can I borrow more than one pass at a time?
Since we only have a small number of passes available at any given time, we ask library users to only reserve one pass for each two-day time slot. However, a pass to a second museum (if available) may be borrowed.
Do you have tickets?
No, we do not have individual tickets for the museums. The program uses library membership passes that we loan out to those who reserve each pass in advance.
Do I need to have a library card in order to use the pass?
Yes. To visit the Intrepid museum, you must present your Secaucus Library card when showing the membership badge at the admission counter. Other museums may or may not ask to see a library card; however, we encourage all Secaucus residents to get a library card — because it’s the best card to have! When picking up the pass, we will check your library card account to make sure there are no outstanding fines or overdues. We require a library card in good standing as part of our pass program.
What do I do if I can’t pick up the pass or I need to change the date that I want to go?
If you can’t pick up the pass personally, you may designate another family member, over the age of 18, to pick it up with your library card. If you are unable to visit the museum during the days that you have reserved the pass, please call the library as soon as possible to cancel, so that we can make the pass available to others.
Does everyone that is visiting the museum with me need to be a Secaucus resident or a family member?
No, only the person responsible for the pass needs to be a resident.
What if there’s a cancellation?
Just call us or check the website, Monday-Friday, and we can let you know if there are any openings.
What do I do if I lose the pass while I am borrowing it?
When you pick up the pass, you will fill out a contract stipulating that you are responsible for the pass and in the event it is lost or stolen, you will assume the entire cost of replacing it.
What time do I have to pick up and return the pass?
When you pick up the pass, you will to bring your library card, a $50 deposit and fill out a contract stipulating that you are responsible for the pass and in the event it is lost or stolen, you will assume the entire cost of replacing it. Replacement costs vary by museum.
