Experience Kits



We have partnered with the Heinz Center Affiliates Program and other Allegheny County libraries; we are offering FREE ADMISSION for up to two adults and six children (under 18) to a number of museums and historical sites around Pittsburgh.

Be on the lookout for additional virtual programs held throughout the summer with our experience kit partners.

Experience kits are passes that can be checked out for one week at a time and must be returned to the Northern Tier Library.

Current participating sites include:
