The Museum Pass Program offers free or discounted admission to many attractions, such as: The Trustees of Reservations Go Pass (includes The Fruitlands Museum), New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill, Davis Farmland, and many more.

Children’s Programming

We purchase supplies for Story Time and fund professional performers and outside experts such as artists, magicians, wildlife encounters, and more.

We support a variety of professional performers and outside experts for adults. The Friends also fund materials for the Great Decisions program, America's largest discussion group on world affairs.
