Discover the Vancouver Inspiration Pass—it's free

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      I love culture and visiting a museum on a rainy day is nice way to spend an afternoon. I didn't know until now about the Vancouver Inspiration Pass program and thought I would write about it to inform other museum buffs.

      It's a free pass that offers all Vancouver residents 14 years and older a chance to visit 20-plus cultural institutions and tourist attractions around the city.

      You don't have to pay the entry fee to see exhibitions at the Museum of Anthropology, UBC Botanical Gardens, Museum of Vancouver, and even Maplewood Farm.

      The library issues 140 passes that are each valid for two weeks. Twenty passes are available downtown, six are at each neighbourhood branch, and the best part is it's an ongoing program.

      What's even more exciting is that it accommodates up to four people per pass. So you can take your grandchildren along to see some culture on a Saturday afternoon.

      What a delightful way to be a tourist in your own city.

      Except the waiting list for one is about 18 months. Still, it's awesome!
