If you hear the word “museum” and think of a dull place with dusty paintings or old bones, it is time to check out some of the museums in the greater Shrewsbury area! And what better way to broaden your (or your whole family’s) horizons, then by taking advantage of the Shrewsbury Library’s Museum Passes Program. Each of the participating museums has designated some form of discount pricing, for example, half price admission or $5 off admission prices. In some cases, admission via the Museum Pass Program is completely free.
How Does The Program Work?
The program is open to Shrewsbury residents who have a valid library card. You can drop by the Shrewsbury Library any time they are open, for personal help signing up. You can also call the library for help reserving a specific pass. (Please have your library card handy.) You can also check availability online, if you have your library card and PIN number. There is a limit of 1 pass per family, per day.
