Downtown Culture Pass Gives Visitors Three Days of Unlimited Access to Museums in Lower Manhattan

In an effort to highlight the multiple cultural attractions located within convenient walking distance of each other, several of Manhattan’s downtown museums have banded together to create the Downtown Culture Pass — a ticket, good for three days, that provides admission, shop discounts or other benefits at eight downtown museums plus a tour company, all located south of Chambers Street. The participating organizations will host a press reception on November 3 at 10 am at the Museum of American Finance, followed by a walking tour of the museums at 11 am.

Elizabeth H. Berger, president of the Downtown Alliance, said the Downtown Culture Pass makes it easy to explore Lower Manhattan’s impressive array of cultural institutions.

“Lower Manhattan is rich in history, culture and the arts. We’re delighted that our world-class museums and other attractions can showcase all that our district has to offer,” Berger said.

For the single price of $25 for adults (18+), $15 for youths (13-17) and $5 for children (6-12), the Downtown Culture Pass will grant each ticket holder unlimited admission and/or other discounted benefits for three full days to any and all participating museums, plus discounted tours conducted by Wall Street Walks. The pass may be purchased online at, or in person at the Museum of American Finance or the Museum of Jewish Heritage. A rack card with information on the cultural attractions, offers, and how and where to buy tickets, will be available at the participating museums. The Downtown Culture Pass program will run from November 4, 2010 through February 28, 2011 and may subsequently be extended or expanded.
