JFTN & Cool Culture


Our partnership Cool Culture grants JFTN parents and staff free admission to museums and cultural institutions throughout NYC.

Each fall, we encourage parents and staff to complete our Cool Culture orientation and submit the form below to receive their Cool Culture pass.

What is Cool Culture?

Cool Culture is an organization that helps families seize the limitless learning opportunities in NYC’s arts & cultural institutions with fun, free, & enriching experiences for young children and families. With a Cool Culture pass, JFTN staff, students and their families can attend arts and cultural institutions throughout NYC for free.

Where is Cool Culture?

You can use your Cool Culture pass at more than 90 art and science institutions in the NYC area, like the Whitney Museum, the Transit Museum, Central Park Zoo, and many more.

How Does It Work?
