Community Passports

Community Passports give NPL cardholders free admission to area attractions and services. Thank you to the National Museum of African American Music and the Country Music Hall of Fame for opening their doors through this partnership.

National Museum of African American Music Passport

Provides two adults from Davidson County free admission through a partnership between Nashville Public Library and the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM). 

Borrow

  • View available passports or place a hold on a NMAAM passport with your library card.
  • You must be an NPL cardholder and a Davidson County resident to borrow a passport. 
  • Passports may be checked out for 7 days.
  • No renewals. Once the passport is used you can place it on hold again. 
  • If unused, passes should be returned to any library location.
  • A passport might show as being checked out on your library account for up to a week after you use it. Don't worry: it's just on its way back from the museum and will disappear from your account when checked in.

Visit

  • Before using your pass, visit the National Museum of African American Music online to make your plans, learn about parking, and more. 
  • When you arrive at the museum, present the passport at the information desk to gain admission.
