Museum Passes

Book a museum pass online with your library card number by selecting an option below.  Reservations can be cancelled using the link provided in the confirmation email or by contacting the library at 781-270-1693.

Due to the ever-changing operations of museum passes, it is important that you review the information provided when selecting and booking your library pass.  Many museums currently require pre-booking and appointed time entry assignments, which can require you to not only reserve a museum pass for the correct date from the library, but also reserve a ticket for the corresponding date from the museum you are visiting.  The library is not responsible for an individual's errors in booking and we cannot issue refunds.  Please check individual museum websites for hours of operation and special events.

Rules About Booking

  • Families may reserve one museum pass per day; each individual museum pass may be reserved once per family, per month.
