Museum Passes

THE NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM PASS IS BACK!  Beginning September 1, 2023, The New England Aquarium pass is available to check out.

REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM: We are not offering passes for the Boston Museum of Science or Museum of Fine Arts. 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 basic admission (i.e., excluding special attractions), up to a maximum of $30. Limit (1) one reimbursement per household per calendar year per museum. PPL cardholders only.

Plaistow Public Library offers discount passes for the great attractions listed below. A big THANK YOU to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring these popular passes!

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 after 6 PM or the day of your visit (4 pm on Fridays and 2 pm on Saturdays).

Please don't request a pass earlier -- this is a courtesy extended by our neighboring libraries and they've invested their resources primarily to benefit their own taxpayers and cardholders.
