Just in time for the holiday tourism season, the Downtown Alliance is offering considerable savings to many downtown institutions. Launched yesterday, the Downtown Culture Pass gives you three days of free entry and other discounts to some of downtowns’ cultural attractions.

The Downtown Culture Pass starts at $25 for adults, with discounts for teens and children, and is valid through February, 2011.

David Cowen, president of the Museum of American Finance, told DNAinfo.com, “While some of those institutions already offer free admission, it would still cost over $70 to visit all of them.”

Six museums in all are offering discounts on admission through the Downtown Culture Pass, including the Fraunces Tavern Museum, the Museum of American Finance, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the National Museum of the American Indian, the New York City Police Museum, the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, the Skyscraper Museum, the Tribute WTC Visitor Center, as well as the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site. Also featured are the Tribute WTC Visitor Center, the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site and a discount on Wall Street Walks.

Have you visited any of these museums? Do you think this is a good deal?
