NOTE: Updated as April 26, 2021: Many museums are limiting access due to COVID restrictions. Please contact the museum directly to confirm a reservation if necessary, then request a library pass for that date.
NEW: We are not offering passes for the Aquarium or Boston Museum of Science (effective July 1, 2021). Instead, purchase your ticket from them directly, save your receipt, and submit it to the library. We will reimburse you (by mail) for 50% of the cost of admission, up to a maximum of $30. Limit (1) one reimbursement per family per year per museum. PPL cardholders only. (See below for an insider tip!)

Note: We also offer a museum pass sharing program with our Coop partners. If one of our passes is unavailable, you can reserve or pick up any pass available from Atkinson or Sandown the day before or the day of your visit.
Also, our partners offer passes to museums that we don't.
Kimball: Bedrock Gardens, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Peabody Essex Museum, Strawbery Banke, & USS Constitution Museum
Both: Currier Museum of Art.
Insider Tip: Both Atkinson and Sandown offer passes to the Boston Museum of Science and New England Aquarium. In most cases, families will save more money using an official museum pass versus going through Plaistow's reimbursement program. So check w/ them first!
