Museum Pass Program — New Feature for this Year!

For your convenience we will be offering many of our museum passes as disposable paper passes.

  • Lee residents can still reserve a pass up to two weeks in advance. As an added benefit you will be able to pick up your pass any time before your museum visit.

  • Non-Lee residents can reserve a pass 24 hours in advance, and can pick it up the day of their visit or the day before.

  • You can now reserve a pass specifically for a Sunday.

It is important to remember if you choose to pick up your pass early we cannot issue you another one if you misplace it!

Please call us, 413-243-0385, with any questions and to check for availability.
