Google is cool and all, but don't sleep on old school media. For example, the classic library. Any pre-internet Homo sapien remembers the days of weaving through their local library's aisles like Pac-Man in search of books. But did you know your Miami library can also get you into the city's best museums for free?

Miami-Dade Public Library System's Museum Pass Program is one of the city's most underrated resources and, with summer in full swing, now seems like a good time to remind you of it.

First, you have to visit your nearest library branch and get yourself a library card. Then, ask to check out a museum pass for any of the 13 participating museums. The passes—distributed on a first-come, first-served basis—are good for one visit per museum and include free entry for a family of four. 

Here are all the museums you can get yourself into.

1. Coral Gables Museum

2. Deering Estate

3. Fruit & Spice Park

4. HistoryMiami Museum

5. Jewish Museum of Florida
