Now, there is one extra benefit of your new citizenship. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has just started to offer a special free one year membership to all new citizens.
The MFA is one of the most popular museums in Boston, and it’s one of the largest museums in the country – that the whole family can enjoy. Usually one visit to the museum would cost $25. With this membership, there are free visits for a family for one year. (You can try exploring the museum online)
If you are not a citizen, or have been a citizen for more than one year, you can still visit for less money by:
- Visiting at free times (Wednesdays from 4 to 10PM) or on free days (July 21st; October 9th)
- or getting a museum pass from many area libraries including Framingham ($10 instead of $25)
If you are a new citizen, here is more information (including in other languages):
Español | Kreyòl Ayisyen | Português do Brasil | 简体中文
To get your membership: Just come to the Museum, show a copy or photo of your naturalization certificate at any ticket desk within one year of your swearing-in, and you will get a free Museum membership for one year.
MFA Citizens membership includes:
- Special in-person welcome packet and introduction to the Museum
- Free admission to the Museum for one year for two adults and unlimited children (age 17 and under)
- Free MFA mobile guide rental for MFA Citizens members (available in 9 languages)
