 The Children's Museum of New Hampshire and Strawbery Banke passes are temporarily unavailable as of July 2021. We are in the process of renewing our membership to these museums. Thank you for your patience!

Most museums now require an additional timed reservation made in advance in addition to your library pass. The requirements for each are listed below. Be sure to visit the museum's website and make these arrangements before you go. 

You will still need to come to the library to pick up our physical museum pass in order to get your discount.

If you have any questions about booking or picking up passes, call Katie at 207-439-1553 x2.
