Day Passes

Plan a Special Day

We welcome you to visit, give rein to your curiosity, and experience all twelve floors of historic reading rooms and bookshelves. Artworks and furniture from the special collections make the Athenæum a truly comfortable and inviting place to spend the day. Amenities include free WiFi, well-lit work tables, cozy nooks, and lovely views of the city in all seasons.

Day Passes are available to purchase for $40 at our front desk or through the form below. They are valid for all open hours. While you’re here, you can enjoy all parts of the Boston Athenæum that are open to members. 

If your day here leaves you wanting more, the fee for the Day Pass can be applied to the cost of a membership if you join on the same day!

Call 617-720-7604 or email with questions.

See you soon!
