I’m bored! It’s a phrase constantly heard by parents throughout the country. So how do you fix this seemingly never ending problem? Head to one of Massachusetts’ many museums. If you’re worried about the pricey admission, no problem, all you need is a library card. Many local libraries have free or discounted passes to museums and cultural venues throughout the state.
At the Boston Public Library you can get passes to the Boston Children's Museum, the Museum of Science and the New England Aquarium. In Wakefield, you can pick up tickets for The House of the Seven Gables or Zoo New England. Down on the South Shore, find passes for Plimoth Plantation and World’s End in Hingham.
Most libraries list available museum passes on their website, and each one has different rules for using them, so be sure to check out the details before you plan your visit.
