COVID-19 Update August 2020:
Some museums have reopened with safety protocols in place, including timed ticketing with reservations. Library museum passes entitle pass holders to reduced admission prices but may require advance reservations. If you are interested in checking out a museum pass, please call the library at 781-659-2015 for details.
The Norwell Public Library is pleased to provide passes to various museums in our area. Most passes allow for a reduced admission fee for a specific number of people.
Passes can be reserved by anyone with an active OCLN library card. Passes are limited to 3 per family per month and 2 per family per day. During school vacations, passes are limited to Norwell residents and only 1 pass per family during that vacation time.
Reserved passes may be picked up at the library the day before with an active library card. Please call the library or go to www.norwellpubliclibrary.org for library hours. We do try to keep information about the museums up-to-date, but we recommend you call or check the museum’s website to confirm hours of operation, dates opened/closed and admissions fees.
