Museum Passes

Library Museum Passes | Additional Museum Discounts

Museum passes are paid for with funds contributed by the Friends of the Ventress Library. You must be an Old Colony Library Network cardholder in order to book a pass. Each pass has its own requirements--some fully cover the cost of admission, while others give a discount. Please make sure to read the terms of your specific pass when booking.

Some passes must be picked up at the library, while others are online passes that are sent by email. If you reserve an online pass and don't provide an email address, you'll need to pick up a printed copy of the pass at the library.
