Museum Pass 3 days - Offers can be used before or after?

Hello,

I was trying to buy the 3-day Museum Pass for May 9, 10 and 11, but then I remembered that I wanted to use the discount on the ferry (20-25% when you have the Museum Pass) on May 8th .

If we use the pass for discount on the cruise on May 8th, then, we won´t be able to use it on May 11th (day 4 for a 3-day pass)?
Or is it ok to use the discounts before day 1 of the 3-day pass?

thanks for your help,
B

There is no 3-day pass. There are 2-day, 4-day, and 6-day passes.

We got the 3 day pass and used it for 3 days. I would be surprised if they let you use it on a 4th day. Money-wise, we about broke even with the pass. We wanted it to avoid the lines.

The OP is talking about Turkey which she tagged and the sites are in Istanbul.

I found the pass extremely helpful for avoiding lines. As I recall, I used a regular ferry on the Bosphorus, not the tourist one for which the pass provides a discount, and as I recall, the ferry was very inexpensive.

Sorry, I myself thought my post was not clear enought.

The question is whether I can use the pass for a certain discount (like x% in transfers from airport or x% in Bosphorus cruise) on days that are not the ones I´m going to use the pass for the museums and attractions.
