Local Intel: How To Visit Vancouver Attractions for Free with the Inspiration Pass



Have you signed up for the Vancouver Inspiration Pass yet? This awesome cultural and recreational pass offers Vancouver residents free access to many of our City’s top venues and attractions for two weeks.

The Inspiration Pass is reserved through the Vancouver Library. Once your pass becomes available you can use it to visit each participating organization once during the two-week loan period. So you can visit most of Vancouver’s great museums, the Ballet, Opera and Symphony Orchestra, and one of Vancouver Park Board’s swimming pools, fitness centres, golf courses and ice rinks.

I was lucky to get the Inspiration Pass over Spring Break. We crammed in visits to the Planetarium, Art Gallery, Aquarium, Maplewood Farm, Museum of Vancouver, Aquatic Centre and Vancouver Police Museum. Our three-year old was a little young for some of the museums, but, I wasn’t too sad cutting a few visits short, because admission was free and at least I got a taste of attractions we can enjoy in the future.

How the Inspiration Pass Works

For the two weeks you have the Pass, you can use it get free general admission to a variety of Vancouver attractions for you and your family (four guests, two adults and children aged 18 and younger) or up to four teens (aged 14 – 18).

How to get your hands on the pass

To borrow a Vancouver Inspiration Pass, you must be a Vancouver resident aged 14 years or older with a valid Vancouver Public Library card. Use your library card, to place a hold on the Vancouver Inspiration Pass through the library’s online catalogue. If you have any questions drop by the Kitsilano Branch of the libary or call 604-331-3603.
