Where can kids and their parents climb through a two-story maze, go on a reading adventure with Arthur™, see colorful patterns in a bubble, travel to Japan and use chopsticks or climb a rock wall?

Each day patrons of over 180 libraries do this and more at Boston Children's Museum. The Library Half-Price Discount Program makes it possible for families to visit one of Boston's premier educational institutions at half the regular admission price. Boston Children’s Museum offers three types of library discount programs:

Half Year -Library Half Price Discount Program ($350) allows library patrons to visit the Museum on every day that the Museum is open for six consecutive months. Admission coupons are issued to the library and are date specific. Up to four people can visit the Museum with each coupon and each pays an admission fee of half the regular price.

Partial Week -Library Half Price Discount Program ($350) allows library patrons to visit the Museum three days per week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) for twelve months.
