Museum Passes

Passes Available

At the Library of Brookline we offer the following museum passes to our residents and patrons to save on museum visits and trips. The Museum Pass program is generously funded by the Brookline Library Foundation, made up entirely of Brookline residents and volunteers. Click on the museum picture to visit that museum's website.

Coming soon!

Starting January 1, 2017, some museum passes will be available to reserve and pick up at our Coolidge Corner and Putterham locations. In addition, the pickup for the Larz Anderson pass will change to our Putterham location only.
