Museum & Recreation Passes

Some museum passes are currently available, while other museums are closed or passes unavailable. Due to COVID-19, state or local restrictions may close museums. Even when open, many museums now require advance tickets in addition to passes, as well as proof of vaccination. Please check the ticketing process with the museum.

At the Public Library of Brookline, we offer the following museum passes to Brookline residents 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.
