Museum passes provide free or reduced general admission to museums and other places of interest. We thank The Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum for funding our museum pass program! The Berkshire Athenaeum offers the following passes:
Library patrons must have a CWMARS library card and a Library Account Password to use the online reservation program. Information about your Library Account Password is available here.
Some Museum Passes do not need to be returned to the library. Instead, patrons will be given a Museum Pass Facsimile, i.e. photocopy, which is to be turned in at the museum admission desk.
When patrons pick up a reserved Museum Pass, library staff will alert them if the Museum Pass they are using needs to be returned or if it is one of our new Museum Pass Facsimiles.
It is our goal to offer all the Museum Passes in our program as Museum Pass Facsimiles; and we are working with Museums toward that option, which we believe will be more convenient for both library patrons and staff.
