Ambassador Pass

Each January, the yearly Ambassador Pass program is underwritten by those attractions that normally charge a fee. The program is designed to encourage Newport News residents and current City of Newport News employees to be a "visitor in their own hometown."

The pass offers residents and employees an opportunity to learn more about the wealth of activities available in their city's museums, parks, and historic homes so that they can share this information with visiting friends and family.

Also, be sure to visit these FREE attractions all year-round (donations appreciated): The Newsome House Museum & Cultural Center, The Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center, the US Army Transportation Museum and our many parks.
