Museum Passes

The Sawyer Free Library is proud to offer museum passes to many local cultural attractions. 

Our museum passes are generously provided by the Friends of Sawyer Free Library. 


Museums vary as to when they are reopening.  In addition, many of them are requiring timed tickets when they do reopen.  Discount passes can sometimes be used with timed ticketing.  Before you request a museum pass, we strongly recommend that you check with the individual museum to check whether they are open and to make sure they are accepting the discounted passes at this time.


Reserving a Museum Pass

Passed may be reserved up to thirty (30) days in advance online, by phone, or in person. 


It’s easy to reserve a pass online.  Have your library card ready, as you will need the fourteen (14) digit bar code to reserve your pass online. You may also see what passes you have reserved and cancel reservations by clicking My Passes. Discounts vary by museum. For more information on what discounts are offered by specific museums, click on the pass reservation system.


To reserve by phone, call 978-325-5500. Remember to have your library card ready. 


To reserve in person, simply stop by the Service Desk on the main floor. 

Picking up a Museum Pass

Pick up your pass at the Service Desk on the main floor of the library. If your pass is returnable, please plan to pick it up after 2:00 pm the day before your museum visit. You may pick up non-returnable passes any time before your museum visit. 

Returning a Museum Pass

Please drop returnable passes in one of our two book drops or at the Service Desk on the main floor by 9:30 am the day after use. Many museums collect passes at the time of your visit; these do not need to be returned. 

Additional Information

A valid card from any NOBLE library is required to reserve passes.  


Only one pass may be reserved per day with the exception of the MFA and Isabella Stewart Gardner, which can be borrowed together on the same day.
