Museum Pass Rules & Procedures

The Friends of the Peabody Institute Library, Danvers generously provides funding for the museum pass program.These passes allow free or reduced admission to some of the Boston area’s most popular institutions. Patrons may make reservations in person, by phone or online. Our online reservation system allows patrons to search pass availability by museum or date, reserve passes and cancel reservations.

Please check the hours the museum is open before making a reservation.

NOTE: Be sure to check whether your pass needs to be picked up at the library or can be printed at home. If you don’t have a printer the library would be happy to print your pass for you.
