Free museum visits on the way for Hamilton library card holders

A motion approved by the general issues committee aims to increase awareness of Hamilton’s museums.

Once it receives final approval by city council, the one year pilot project will provide free admission to all eight city-operated museums to anyone holding a Hamilton library card.

Ward 4 Coun. Sam Merulla presented the motion saying knowledge of Hamilton’s museums is “very low” and he’s hoping this will “open the floodgates” of awareness by getting visitors through the doors.

Flamborough Coun. Judi Partridge says she looks forward to seeing the numbers at the conclusion of the pilot project.

City of Hamilton operated museums are;
– Dundurn National Historic Site
– Hamilton Military Museum
