 Michigan Activity Pass

Celebrating its 10-year-anniversary, the Michigan Activity Pass program will continue to provide free or discounted access to hundreds of Michigan state parks and recreation areas, historic sites, cultural attractions, and campgrounds.

Library users with a valid library card can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to more than 400 participating destinations across the state.  Our partner venues include the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Michigan Renaissance Festival, and the Michigan Science Center. View step-by-step instructions to checking out a Michigan Activity Pass here.

Passes for library card holders range from complimentary or reduced price admission to discounts in the gift shop or other exclusive offers. Each Michigan Activity Pass expires within one week from the date it is printed. Each library will have five passes for each of the participating organizations available.  Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable.  The institution will collect the pass when you visit.  Special exhibits may not be covered, and other exclusions may apply.


  • You can "check out" one pass every seven days with your library card.
  • Prior to selecting and printing your pass, call ahead or check the destination's website to verify that their hours of operation work with your schedule.
  • Once you print out a MAP pass, you have seven days to use it.
  • Please note that if you choose to print your MAP pass on a library printer, you will be charged the regular fee for printing.
  • Only passes printed from the MAP website can be redeemed at MAP destinations.  No photocopies are accepted.
