A Great Deal for New US Citizens


If you received your US citizenship in the past year, congratulations!

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):

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)
  • Member discounts on programs, shopping, parking, and dining
  • Print and e-mail newsletters about upcoming MFA programs
  • Invitations to member events
