The Museum Pass for April this year to March 1998 is on sale at Urban Council museums.

The annual Museum Pass allows individual holders to have unlimited access to the exhibition halls of the council's four major museums - the Science Museum, the Space Museum, the Museum of Art and the Museum of History.

The pass does not cover the Space Theatre due to revenue-sharing arrangements with the producers of Omnimax shows.

Pass-holders are entitled to cash discounts for the purchase of selected items in the museum gift shops and a 10 per cent discount for courses and various educational activities.

The normal fee for an annual pass is $100, with concessionary rate at $50 for senior citizens, the disabled and full-time students.

Application forms are available at all museums and public libraries managed by the council.
