The Southborough Library has added to its museum pass collection. They now have passes that allow free admission to the USS Constitution Museum in Boston.
Even better, they also have vouchers offering the same.
(What’s the difference? The vouchers don’t need to be returned. Passes do. But the voucher supply may run out. Meanwhile the library will have 4 passes available for at least a full year.)
Each allows admission of up to 9 people to the museum for free.
The ship, dry docked nearby, is owned and operated separately with free admission to the public. So, now you can enjoy both for free.

To get a voucher, stop by the Children’s Room desk at the library. Or reserve a pass online here.
The library offers passes to 11 other venues including museums, parks, aquariums, a garden, and a zoo. Click here for more information.
Note: Both the Library and the Friends of the Southborough Library are working on more new passes. So stay tuned.
The USS Constitution is actually in dry dock being repaired right now and you can still go topside to see her. Here is an article about it: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2015/06/09/restoration-work-uss-constitution-begin-tuesday/FIgM2NLk7VlTEn63mnkDZJ/picture.html?p1=Article_Gallery
Sounds even more interesting than when she is afloat :-)
