EAST BRUNSWICK, NJEast Brunswick Public Library (2 Jean Walling Civic Center) is expanding its popular museum pass program. Insectropolis of Toms River, NJ, and the Garden State Discovery Museum of Cherry Hill, NJ, are now included.

“Since we began our museum pass program, it has been very popular with our patrons,” said Stephanie Filippone, adult services manager. “Thanks to generous support of the Friends of the Library, we were able to add two more museums to the program.”

Insectropolis is a fun and unique insect learning center for all ages. Set within the architecture of a bug-theme city, the displays and hands-on exhibits let you explore the world of insects. No visit is complete without petting one of the residents—a live tarantula, scorpion, millipede and even a hissing cockroach!

The Garden State Discovery Museum is a hands-on celebration of imagination where children can discover a world just their size and adults can share in their discoveries.  Some of the exhibits include a rock climbing wall, building a two-story house and getting inside a gigantic bubble
