Museum Passes

The Richmond Free Public Library offers many museum passes from around the Berkshire.  Passes are available on a first come, first serve basis.  Patrons may not reserve passes. 

The only exception to this rule is during the Hancock Shaker Village Baby Animal Days. Passes may be reserved for this exhibit.


  • The passes admit anywhere from 2-4 people per pass for free or discounted admittance.
  • The passes are due back the next open library day by 9:30 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays and by 9:00 AM on Saturdays.
