New Museum Pass: One Stop Fun

   Monday, July 26th, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

One Stop Fun logoWe just added another new museum pass for patrons to use - One Stop Fun in Westford.

Our pass admits one child and one adult to the indoor playground at no charge (a $9.99 value), and passholders can upgrade to use the pool for an extra $5.00. This pass, and all our other museum passes, can be reserved through our Museum Pass webpage.

One Stop Fun "was originally known as Gymnastics Unlimited, Inc. and Gym Mania, Inc. When we expanded our center to include a full service Dance Center, the ultimate Party Place and our interactive outdoor Pool Plaza, we became One Stop Fun."

Be sure to read about the other new resources we recently added.
