Make more of Spring Break: Library museum and park passes

Discount passes to both are available to borrow through the Library. (photo left by Kathy Tarantola from Facebook, right posted to flickr by Abigail Batchelder)

Next week, is spring break for Southborough public schools. That means, it’s a great time to plan some fun outings. So, I thought I’d remind you about the the Southborough Library’s museum and park passes.

With the Library also taking a Patriot’s Day break, you can even take a pass with you for a long weekend.

Passes cover a variety of museums for all age groups. There are also passes for enjoying parks, gardens and wildlife. A few of the passes offer free admission, with the rest providing a substantial discount.

With 16 to choose from (and more seasonal ones at other times of the year), there’s something for everyone:

  • Boston Children’s Museum
  • deCordova Museum & Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA
  • Discovery Museums Acton
  • EcoTarium, Worcester, MA
  • Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA
  • Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, MA
  • Massachusetts State Parks Pass
  • Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA
  • Museum of Science, Boston, MA
  • Mystic Aquarium, Mystic, CT
  • New England Aquarium, Boston, MA
  • Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA
  • Salem Witch Museum, Salem, MA
  • Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston, MA
  • USS Constitution Museum
  • Worcester Art Museum

(Please note that some passes need to be returned by 10 am the next day the Library is open.)

You can find details and reserve passes through the library’s website pass manager. Or you can make reservations by calling 508-485-5031 during library hours.

*The pass program is courtesy of the Friends of the Southborough Library (which funded the majority of the passes), the Southborough Gardeners (providing the Tower Hill pass), and the few venues that donated passes (Mass State Parks, Mystic Aquarium, and Salem Witch Museum).
