Iowa Libraries provide free passes to area attractions! Here at the JKPL we provide a pass to the Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque. A pass is valid for general admission for two adults and two children.  This pass is free to our patrons (restrictions do apply)!  One pass may be reserved once every 365 days.


Requirements to get a pass:

  • Patron must 18 and older and have a library card at the James Kennedy Public Library.
  • Library card accounts must be valid, non-expired, and in good standing.
  • Patrons must be full-service library card holders. This means patrons must live within the Dyersville city limits, live within the city limits of a town that contracts with the JKPL for service, or have purchased a membership at the JKPL.



  • A pass may be reserved once every 365 days for each adult card holder.
  • Passes CANNOT be used for any special events at the museum; it is only for general admission for two adults and two children.
  • Cardholders must present a valid photo ID and a printed pass for admission at the museum. The name on the pass and the ID must match. 
  • Please be sure to check days/hours of operation at the Museum before reserving a pass.
  • If plans change and you cannot use the pass on the reserved date, please call the library to cancel the pass. This frees you up to reserve another date and allows others to reserve the date you no longer want.
