PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS & PASSES
The museum is involved in a few partnership programs around the city. Once in a while, guests will present passes that correspond to the program. When welcoming guests with passes, be sure to indicate on the Guest Information clipboard and the attendance sheet if they used a pass.
The following are descriptions of the program and what to do when you encounter of these passes. Examples of what these passes look like can be found in the blue Volunteer Binder located in the office.
Note for ALL Partnership Programs: On Sundays, Pass Holders are required to make a $3 donation if they would like to have some tea and cookies.
- Roedde House Members All Roedde House members are allowed to attend the museum for free, with one guest. Members can use their membership cards and the free tour tickets that they are gifted with.
Procedure: Ask them to show their pink membership pass. Check to see if their membership cards and/or free tour passes have expired.
- Tourism Privilege Pass A Pass earned from completing the Tourism Passport Challenge, in which members of the Tourism Industry were required to collect a number of stamps from various Vancouver attractions from mid-April to May. Privilege Pass holders gain free entry for themselves and only one other person to attractions located around Vancouver. Procedure: Ask guests to present their Privilege Pass and make sure that their face matches the photo on the ID. Be sure to check that their Pass coincides with the current year.

Procedure: These guests will present a card that has "Tourism Vancouver" on one side with their name and address on it, and on the opposite side, a list of places/organizations that they can be admitted to free of charge (One time admission for 2 people). Just be sure to check off "Roedde House Museum" on that pass, once again to make sure that nobody is using the pass twice.
