Museum Passes
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Framingham Library Association and other supporters, we are fortunate to be able to offer a wide range of passes for free or reduced admission to local museums, historic attractions, botanic gardens, and zoos. With the help of the library pass program, you and your family can explore new attractions and revisit favorites.
Book Online
You may book a pass by calling the Reference Desk at 508-532-5570 ext 4361, or you can view their availability and reserve passes yourself. Patrons must have a valid Minuteman Library Card number to reserve passes. Passes may be reserved up to 60 days in advance. When reserving passes online, use the calendar in the upper right corner to see all available dates.

Passes must be picked up by 11am on the day of the reservation. The library reserves the right to cancel the reservation unless other arrangements are made.

Museum Passes are held at the Main Library (not McAuliffe.)
