New Museum Pass: Einstein's Workshop

   Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

einsteinsworkshopChelmsford patrons have access to a new museum pass through the Library: Einstein's Workshop, in Burlington.

Einstein's Workshop offers many science and technology classes, and has a great drop-in space. The Library's pass offers free admission during drop in hours and admits up to 2 children.

Drop-in hours vary, so check our museum pass website for more information, and to reserve a pass. You can also visit Einstein's Workshop's website at http://www.einsteinsworkshop.com for more information on their activities.

In other museum pass-related news, the library is running a trial for the summer to make our passes more accessible. We're going to waive our regular pass limits for any day-of-use pass that isn't already reserved that day. So, if you already have something booked, and another museum you'd like to visit is also available on that day, you can now borrow both of them.

At the end of the summer we'll evaluate how the trial went and decide how to move forward. If you have any questions or suggestions about museum passes, please contact the Reference Desk at askus@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x211.

New England Aquarium Pass Available

   Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

New England AquariumDuring the summer months, there are no museum passes for the New England Aquarium. However, starting right after Labor Day, Chelmsford Residents (and members of the Friends of the Library) will once again be able to reserve our pass to visit the Aquarium.

This pass admits 4 people for the reduced admission of $8.00 per person, but does not provide discounts on parking, the IMAX Theater, cafe' or gift shop, and cannot be applied toward Whale Watch tickets.

Summer might be ending, but there's still lots to go out and do. Visit our website to reserve the Aquarium pass, as well as any of our other museum passes.

New Museum Pass: One Stop Fun

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.
