Museum Passes at the JBPL

PLEASE NOTE - Many institutions are suspending and/or changing their library pass program.  Many institutions are requiring reservations for people to visit.  You need to get your library pass before making your reservation.  Library staff are unable to make reservations to any cultural institution.  Having a library discount pass does not guarantee that the institution will have space for you to visit on the day you select.  Contact the institution you wish to visit for full details on their admission process.  Library staff are doing their best to keep this page up to date.  Library passes may be picked up during regular Library hours and must be returned during these same hours.

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Jonathan Bourne Public Library, museum passes are available to CLAMS card holders. All charges are payable at the museums.
Click here to reserve your pass, or call the library at (508) 759-0600 x6101.

Please have your library card ready. Library policy allows only one pass per family per day.  Please note: Discounts and prices subject to change at museum discretion.
If you receive an email confirmation, please bring it to the library when you pick up your pass along with your library card. The email itself will not admit you, you must have the actual museum pass. Passes must be returned to their owning library.
