From historic sites to sport venues and museums, there’s plenty to see and do in Boston! As you’re planning your trip or while you’re already in Boston, you should consider getting an attraction pass that will help you save money on gate admission prices and give you additional discounts. Be sure if you first have an idea of what sites you want to visit and then choose the right pass for you and your travel needs!


-Eat in the cafeteria of the Museum of Science to enjoy beautiful views of the Charles River.

-the Boston Children’s Museum offers “hands on” exhibits that allow children to learn through play

-the Museum of Fine Art is more than just a place to enjoy fine art; it also offers indoor activities such as Adult Studio Art Class that can keep you busy on a rainy or cold day

-From 10am-12pm on the first Saturday of every month, adults pay child admission price to the Frankin Park Zoo.

Go Select Pass:

The Go Select Pass is unlike other admissions passes: it’s the only pass that actually lets you pick the attractions that you know you want to visit. It’s great if you like to customize your choices and follow a travel itinerary that includes the attractions you’ve identified as important for you to see. You start seeing savings once you’ve chosen the second attraction.

You can purchase the pass online or through the Go Select smartphone app. You can save time by displaying the pass on your smartphone OR you can print the pass PDF you would receive by email (no need to worry about having to first go somewhere to pick up your pass).

There are also a number of pre-built options/theme packages such as “Romantic Boston” or “Colonial Boston” in case you wanted some recommendations. (Note though, if you select the package you can’t remove the attractions from it.)

Go Select Pass is valid for up to 30 days from first use. The Pass covers all the major attractions including the New England Aquarium, Boston Duck Tours, Fenway Park tour, USS Constitution, and Museum of Science.

A sample savings: New England Aquarium + Museum of Science +Boston Duck Tour come out to $64 saving 20% over the standard admission costs of those three attractions.

Best for: People who know what they want to visit and who want to customize their pass based on their specific interests. Also, great for on-the-go travelers, as you can buy the pass last minute and just display the pass on your smartphone to show at the gate.

Go Boston Card

The Go Boston Card gives you access to over 50 attractions for one low price. You only have to choose the amount of days you want to use it for—whether it’s a 1, 2, 3, 5, or 7 day pass, you can save up to 55% off gate prices. Something to keep in mind is that there’s a lot to see, so you need to pace yourself and plan accordingly. Also, there are bonus attractions on the 3, 5, 7 days cards (such as the Boston Duck Tour, New England Aquarium, Boston Harbor Segway adventure).
