Boston CityPASS
Fun to be had in Boston with the CityPASS
The CityPASS made site seeing so simple. We loved not having to wait in long lines for tickets and the locations on the CityPASS were kid approved. The passes were well worth the investment!
Worth the Savings
The CityPASS for Boston was well worth it. We saved a significant amount of money visiting the museums and taking the cruise tour. Had a memorable time and it was worth it!
Boston CityPASS experience
Tasked by my wife to plan a 3-day weekend in Boston, CityPASS was the perfect choice to save us money and see the sights.
Totally worth it!
I bought a CityPASS for our trip to Boston and it was perfect. We went to the Museum of Science (the best!), the Franklin Park Zoo and the New England Aquarium. It was easy to schedule the visits and the passes were right on our phones. Also the price was just right. There were 4 of us, so technically one of the visits was free. Highly recommend Buying the passes.
What a Bargain!
I spent three days in Boston in mid-December with my girlfriend and thankfully, she got us onto a CityPASS. I had no idea they even existed and in hindsight we saved ourselves the equivalent of a whole night's accommodation!
Boston CityPASS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1437.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much for a day pass. I was only able to do one thing for the day and the CityPass is more expensive then that one thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Proceed with Caution: A Candid Review of CityPASS Using CityPASS in Boston was a mixed experience that left much to be desired. While the Boston Harbor City Cruise was a highlight, providing a delightful and informative look at the city, the rest of the attractions included in the pass like the New England Aquarium and the Museum of Science were underwhelming. These sites seemed more geared towards very young audiences and did not offer the depth or engagement expected at their price points. Additionally, the attractions included with CityPASS often lacked clear price transparency, which might surprise users with the real cost versus value received. For those considering CityPASS, I advise careful consideration of each attraction’s appeal and suitability for your group. The pass may offer convenience, but it does not necessarily guarantee a good deal or a fulfilling experience. Potential users should weigh the individual ticket prices and benefits of each attraction against the cost of the pass. If your aim is to explore in-depth or seek experiences catered more towards adults, purchasing tickets directly from the attractions might be a more cost-effective and satisfying option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Worth It! I bought CityPASS tickets for my family of four in Boston and I am happy I did. We chose the Boat Cruise, Prudential Observation, and were assigned Science Museum and the Aquarium. We didn't enjoy the Aquarium - it was basic. and wished we weren't subjected to that attraction. But everything else was great. I messed up time on expiration but representative was very nice to guide us through the process. We saved quite a lot doing the CityPASS

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but wish better choices Bought cityPASS to go to New England Aquarium, View Boston and a cruise tour -and they were so fantastic and well worth it!! Only thing is cityPASS required the science museum which I think should NOT be required when only adult tickets are purchased. Clearly it is a museum for children so it was a waste of money for 2 adults. Instead I feel cityPass should have let us pick 4 places that we wanted to go. Otherwise, if we could've picked the zoo in place of the science museum, they would've got 5 stars. Great time on other places
