State Representative Ryan Spain announced today that his office will make a free ‘Constituent Education Resource Card’ available to residents wishing to visit select museums and zoos in the Chicagoland area.

If you and your family are interested in visiting some of Chicago’s world-class museums, Rep. Spain’s office has a museum pass to use for free admission for select Chicagoland locations. Any resident of the 73rd District can reserve our Constituent Education Resource Card on a first come first serve basis, to visit any of the following museums in 2019:

            • Adler Planetarium
            • The Art Institute of Chicago
            • Brookfield Zoo
            • Chicago Botanic Garden
            • Chicago Children’s Museum
            • Chicago History Museum
            • Dusable Museum of African American History
            • The Field Museum
            • Lincoln Park Zoo
            • Museum of Contemporary Art
            • Museum of Science and Industry
            • National Museum of Mexican Art
            • National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture
            • Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum
            • John G. Shedd Aquarium

Only one group pass is available at a time. Constituents will have to come to the office and pick up the pass before visiting the museums and will have to bring it back to the office once they return from Chicagoland.

Please contact Rep. Spain’s office at (309) 690-7373 to provide your name and address along with the dates you are requesting (can be used for up to 3 days in row) to reserve the Constituent Education Resource Card for your use.
