Museum Passes

AS AREA MUSEUMS OPEN...
Some museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hall at Patriot Place and the USS Constitution Museum are still closed.  Others such as the Museum of Science, Mystic Aquarium and Tower Hill Botanical are open but not accepting library passes at this time.  Some accept library passes but require visitors to book a specific time to visit online--the Gardner Museum, Peabody Essex Museum and the Boston Children's Museum.  We will provide you with these special instructions.  

Please call us or email us with questions.  We are here to help you!
MUSEUM PASSES
Only Holliston residents may reserve passes in advance.  Non-residents may reserve passes no more than one hour before closing on the day before they wish to use the pass or anytime on the actual day.  This is to give Holliston residents every opportunity to use a pass first.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  Passes are picked up in the Children's room.   A valid library card is required and may be obtained for free with proper identification.
 
RESERVATIONS FOR PASSES NOT PICKED UP BY 11 AM ON THE DAY OF USE MAY BE CANCELED AND THE PASSES GIVEN TO OTHER PATRONS. 
 
Each museum/attraction has its own rules and most passes require a co-pay to be paid with admission.   See our PASS POLICY for details.  Returnable passes may be returned in their pouch in the book drop at the lower entrance 24 hours per day.  The fine for late passes is $3 per day.
