If you do not pick up your pass by the reserved date, it will constitute a “No Show.” If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the reserved date, it will also be considered a “No Show.” Because demand for passes is high, two “no shows” in a 60-day period may result in a two-month block on museum pass reservations.

Reservations can be canceled up to two days before the “Day of Use.”   You can cancel by visiting the MusuemKey page and clicking on My Account or by calling 732-873-8700 option 3. If the reservation is canceled the day before or the day of the “Day of Use,” it will be considered a “No Show.”  Because demand for passes is extremely high, two “no shows” in a 60-day period may result in a two-month block on museum pass reservations.

Checked out passes cannot be renewed or extended.  Digital passes are valid only on the “Day of Use” indicated on the reservation.
