Museum Passes

Through the College's memberships, the Library offers passes to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Boston Children's Museum.  Additionally, the Earl Center provides passes to Recycling for RI Education.

Passes are available to current Wheelock students, faculty, and staff. Most passes are also available to alumni.  The passes provide general admission only; they do not include admission to special exhibits, films, events, etc. All passes are first come, first served, and are available at the Service Desk on the first floor of the Library as follows:

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: Staff, faculty, and students with a Wheelock ID are admitted free. The Library has one guest pass for each day of the year the museum is open. Guest passes are good only for the date indicated, and will grant free admission to one person when accompanied by a staff or faculty member with a valid Wheelock ID.  Unfortunately, alumni are not eligible to use these passes.  The passes do not need to be returned to the Library. 

Museum of Fine Arts: Wheelock students are admitted free with their college ID. Two passes may be checked out for 24 hours at a time for free admission.

Boston Children's Museum: The Library has one pass for each day of the year the museum is open. Each pass is good for half price admission for up to 4 people. The passes do not need to be returned to the Library.

Passes to Recycling for RI Education are also available at the Earl Center.   The recycling center is located in Providence, RI. These will give you a deep discount and free admittance to a rich resource for materials for art, science and other activities. You can check the passes out at the Earl Center Service desk.
