Welcome to smARTpass!

smARTpass is updating our website this fall.  New offers are now posting on the current site while the new site is being tested.


If you enjoy being able to get free and discounted tickets through smARTpass, there are two important things you can do:

1) don’t be a no-show!  Please be sure to use your tickets, as this is tracked.

2) let the arts partners know how much you appreciate their continued participation in smARTpass!


If you have any difficulty setting up/logging in to smARTpass with your library card barcode, please contact your library.

The arts access program available exclusively to metro public library users! If you have a library card from one of the eight public library systems in the Twin Cities, you have the opportunity to reserve free and/or discounted admission to a wide range of arts experiences.

The smARTpass arts partners have generously agreed to offer a substantial number of free admissions – they are NOT reimbursed for these. Without their willingness to provide free admissions, smARTpass would not exist!

Interested in knowing when new offers are posted from particular partner organizations?  Sign up for an e-mail newsletter via the My Reservations tab.

(Please keep in mind that tickets often go fast – sometimes within minutes of when new offers are posted – so depending when you check your e-mail, offers may or may not be available.)

How It Works

The same way you enlarge your world through attending programs and classes at your library and checking out a wide range of resources, you are now invited to broaden your cultural experiences beyond the library’s walls through smARTpass, an arts access website offering free and discount admissions to a variety of Twin Cities cultural destinations.
