Library Museum Pass Program

Southold Historical Society is pleased to announce the availability of Museum Passes for local libraries. The Society considers local libraries one of the most valuable resources in the community.  This partnership will provide library patrons access to the Historical Society’s museums and help to promote interest in and education about the history of Southold.


The Library Passes provide admission to two terrific museums that are open on weekends in the summer season – the Southold Historical Society Museum Complex and our Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse. The Library Museum Pass program is mutually beneficial. Not only do library patrons have the opportunity to visit and learn more about Southold, but the purchase of pass by a library helps the Society further their mission to support initiatives that promote the sustainability of our historic past! 

If you are a library or institution that has questions about the Museum Pass program please call 631.765.5500 ext 2. 

Library patrons are encouraged to inquire with their local library about availability directly.
