Families can save big by using the Museum Pass Program. Just use your library card to reserve your pass and enjoy visiting Museums at deep discounts.

The Greater Boston area offers a wide variety of museum discount programs, but most people are not aware of where to find these programs or how to take advantage of them. BostonCentral has recently added information to its leading database of Boston events and activities to help local parents find great discount programs.
The Museum Pass program is one of the best programs for obtaining museum discounts in the Boston area. It is generously sponsored by various Friends of the Library groups - and patrons are able to borrow passes to museums and other local attractions for single-day use.
"It's easy to forget about these wonderful programs," said Stacey Sao, Managing Director of BostonCentral. "But with just a little planning, it's a great way for families to visit many Boston museums in the area at a fraction of the cost of full price tickets."
Each library is different, but many offer discounted passes to places like The Boston Aquarium, The Boston Museum of Science, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Children's Museum, Franklin Park Zoo, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Peabody Essex Museum and many more.
With the online reservation system, they can search for available passes at any Library location within the library network.
Some museums provide libraries with one-time-use disposable passes. These may be picked up at your library branch any time after you make your reservation. Other venues provide returnable passes that may only be picked up the day before or on the day of use.
Passes should be booked in advance as there are a limited number at each location. Adults and teens who have valid, full-service Massachusetts library cards may reserve museum passes. They may be booked online via website, in person, or by phone up to 60 days in advance.
