Experience Kits

About the program

Libraries may be bursting with books, but they offer much more to their card holders – including free museum admission with the Experience Kits program!  

This summer, libraries in Allegheny, Washington, Fayette, and Jefferson Counties will offer their card holders free admission to nine historical sites:  Senator John Heinz History Center, Duncan & Miller Glass Museum, Fort Pitt Museum, Historic Fort Steuben, Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village, Merrick Art Gallery, Old Economy Village, Somerset Historical Center, and West Overton Village & Museum.  

Each “Experience Kit” provides library card holders with free admission for up to four people per visit, as well as educational support materials and itinerary suggestions tailored to the site. It’s essentially a pre-planned road trip, ready to go when you are. Kits can be checked out for one week at a time, and some libraries even allow patrons to select their specific week – a perk for visitors or family vacations.  

This program stems from the original collaboration between the Heinz History Center Affiliate Program, which includes more than 125 regional historical societies and organizations dedicated to preserving their local history, and Whitehall Public Library. As of 2022, the initiative has since expanded to include over fifty libraries throughout four counties, and nine historical sites.
