Passes to The Institute of Contemporary Art Now Available at the Library!

After fielding a number of requests, we are thrilled to announce that we have added The Institute of Contemporary Art: Boston to the museum pass program! After incorporating in 1936, the museum spent decades moving from spot to spot around Boston before opening its flagship location in Boston’s Seaport District in 2006. The 62,000 square foot space now houses a permanent collection of 20th- and 21st-century art with works by Paul Chan, Marlene Dumas, Mona Hatoum, Christian Jankowski, and Cornelia Parker.  The mission of the museum is “to share the pleasures of reflection, inspiration, provocation, and imagination that contemporary art offers through public access to art, artists, and the creative process.”

We are able to offer one pass per day that will admit 2 people at a cost of $5.00 each. Reservations can be made up to a month in advance on the library’s Museum Pass page.

Please note that passes are for the exhibit halls only and are not valid for entry to performances or special events.
