The Friends of the Jones Libraries provide passes to area museums that library cardholders can borrow. Some of these passes allow free admission and others allow discounted admission. The number of adults and children admitted varies from pass to pass.
Passes at the Jones Library
The Jones Library is excited to introduce a new print-on-demand system for our museum passes. Patrons no longer need to visit the library to check out and return circulating passes. Instead, by making a reservation, you generate a single-use pass that can be printed anywhere and presented at the museum on the date of your reservation.
Benefits of Print-on-Demand
Increased availability of passes
By not circulating a physical pass, we eliminate associated replacement fees
Pass availability is not limited by the library’s open hours

For additional information about our museum passes, including information about admission discounts and limitations, please view our Museum Pass Brochure (PDF).
Please check that the museum is open for the day you plan to visit. (Select a museum logo on this page to visit the museum's website and check its schedule.)
You must enter your CW MARS library card number to begin.
Your library card must be active (i.e., not expired).
If you have fees over $30 on your card, you will not be able to reserve or check out a pass.
Reserve your pass for the day you plan to visit the museum.
Passes are reserved for a single day, and are only valid for that date.
Passes may be reserved up to 60 days in advance.
Each pass may be reserved once per patron, per 30 day period.
Passes may be printed at any time prior to the date you plan to visit. (NOTE: At this time, none of our museum partners accept digital passes. All passes must be printed.)
If you lose your printed pass, it may be reprinted.
Printed passes & coupons do not need to be returned to the library.
Passes not shown online are no longer available through the Jones Library. Please see our list of passes available at our branches (below).
Coupons for the Boston Museum of Fine Arts can be picked up at the Reference Desk.
