A challenge for many families visiting Boston, Mass., is wanting to see those famous, world-class museums but not having the funds to do so. I’m sure many of you are thinking how to budget for those attractions headed into spring, summer vacation and beyond.

We have investigated to come up with solutions for that challenge and found that you can save up to 43% on Boston’s 4 best attractions with CityPASS. That admission includes the New England Aquarium, Museum of Science Boston, the Skywalk Observatory and a choice of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, or Boston Harbor Cruises.

CityPass has chosen the attractions well. If I had to choose the best Boston attractions to visit, these attractions mentioned would certainly be at the top of the list.  The New England Aquarium, Museum of Science Boston and the Museum of Fine Arts, on their own, stand as world-class museums.  The Skywalk Observatory affords memorable panoramic views of the city and beyond — high atop of the Prudential Building — and the Boston Harbor Cruises remind us that Boston is really one of the great coastal cities on the east coast.

You have nine days to use your tickets, which is certainly ideal for extended vacations or day trips, for that matter. The tickets can be used in any order.
