Passport to Museums

Current undergraduate and graduate students can explore New York City through our Passport to Museums program. With your CUID and semester validation sticker you can visit over 30 museums that generously provide Columbia students with free admission. From Museum Mile in Manhattan to sculpture gardens in Queens, use your “Passport” to visit these amazing cultural destinations.

​You may obtain your current semester validation sticker from your school's ID center: 204 Kent Hall for all Columbia University and Barnard students, 160 Thorndike Hall for Teachers College students, or 1-405C P&S for all CUMC students.

The Arts Initiative can help faculty arrange and subsidize class visits to Passport to Museums partners through our ArtsLink program. Click here to learn more.

**El Museo del Barrio extends free admission to all current Columbia University students, faculty, and staff, plus a guest (Columbia affiliate must show CUID).
