A PASSPORT TO THE PAST
 
Young visitors to Centennial Village museum have a unique opportunity to travel the past with a “Past-port.”  This new program offered at the museum allows children who purchase the “Past-port” to receive free admission to Centennial Village during the entire season of the year in which it was purchased. 
 
The “Past-port” program also offers many other benefits to participants and their whole family.  One adult per child with a “Past-port” also receives free admission to Centennial Village during the entire season of the year in which the “Past-port” was purchased.  Adults who purchase “Past-port” receive a 10% discount in Selma’s Store, priority registrations for summer camps and classes offered by the City of Greeley Museums, and receive a 50% discount on admission at all Plumb Farm events (Baby Animal Days and Pets ‘n’ Popsicles).
 
Children will be encouraged to accomplish activities to be found at different stations around Centennial Village in order to get pages stamped on their “Past-port.”  Children who fill their “Past-port” receive a Centennial Village medallion custom-made by the Village blacksmith, a Rattlesnake Kate Comic Book, and free admission to one of the following Centennial Village Events:  Potato Day, Howl ‘O’ Ween or Yule Tide Christmas.
The “Past-port” program more than pays for itself.  “Past-ports” bought between May 1 through May 30 will cost $40, saving more than $85.  Between June 1 and July 30, “Past-ports” will be sold for $60, savings worth more than $65.
 
Centennial Village is at 14th Ave. and A St., just south of Island Grove Regional Park. Standard visiting hours are 10 am-4 pm, Wednesday-Saturday and 12 pm – 4 pm on Sunday through September. Admission is $6 for ages 18-59; $4 for ages 60+; $3 for ages 3-17.
