So how do you get them? You visit the Seattle Public Library website and enter your library card number and pin, then choose a specific date and print your museum pass. You’re allowed to reserve one free Museum Pass per week with each pass admitting at least two adults; some passes allow more and may include free admission for kids ages 17 and under.

Keep in mind, if you miss snagging a pass, new passes are made available every day after 12 pm. Enjoy!
