While the Arts Pass program is still operable, many of our partner museums have modified their policies and procedures due to COVID-19. Please see the "Planning Your Visit" section below for information on how to access each museum during the pandemic. We also recommend that you check the museums' websites before planning your trip to receive the most up-to-date information regarding their current hours of operation and responses to COVID-19.

Arts Pass

Through the generous sponsorship from many different funding bodies across campus, all graduate and undergraduate students can gain free access to the following venues throughout the year by swiping their Carnegie Mellon ID at each of the institutions. In order to be eligible, your primary affiliation must be “student” and your information must be listed in the CMU Directory. At this time, faculty, staff, and sponsored guests are not eligible to participate in this program and must pay the full admission price at the door.
