Free Museum Pass for New Mexico Museum of Natural History

How would you like to take your family to the NM Museum of Natural History with no admissions fees? Well you can and it is easy. Donors to the museum purchased museum passes for every public school in Albuquerque. Holders of the passes will receive free admission. You can check-out and borrow the pass for any day of the week. The only thing we ask is that you return it promptly so that others may use it too and to only use it with your family.


Our school's library accepts book donations. All donations are appreciated. Books not added to our library collection, will be given to children who do not have books to read at home.
