We are pleased to announce an addition to the Berkshire Athenaeum’s collection of Museum Passes. Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum, a pass to The Zoo at Forest Park in Springfield is now available. This new pass offers free admission for up to five people to The Zoo and Education Center. Forest Park entrance fee ($3 in-state, $5 out-of-state vehicles) still applies. Those planning a visit to The Zoo at Forest Park are advised to consult hours of admission and driving directions at their website or Facebook page.
This latest addition joins the Athenaeum’s selection of over fifteen museum passes, providing free or reduced general admission to museums and cultural attractions in the Berkshires and beyond. What a great way to plan an affordable family visit to these gems.
How does this work?
- Library patrons must have a CWMARS library card and a Library Account Password to use the online reservation program. Alternatively patrons can contact the Circulation Department at (413) 499 9480 x103.
- At the request of participating museums, we ask that patrons honor the limit of one pass per party per day.
- Passes not picked by noon on the reservation date will be released to others who have interest.
- Some Museum Passes do not need to be returned to the library. Instead, patrons are given a Museum Pass Facsimile (photocopy) which is to be turned in at the museum admission desk.
