Day Membership

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 Athenaeum 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 Memberships 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 Athenaeum that are open to members. 

The day pass fee can be applied to the cost of an annual membership if you join within a week. 

Call 617-720-7604 or email membership@bostonathenaeum.org with questions.
