Make the smart choice!

A year of membership offers a lifetime of learning.

Whether sharing an enriching educational experience with your child, entertaining family and friends at Boston's most visited cultural institution, or spending a Friday night viewing a temporary exhibit, membership is the best way to enjoy the Museum of Science.

Members not only gain inspiration in our Exhibit Halls, but also get valuable savings inside and outside the Museum. In fact, when you add up the value of admissions, free passes, and daily discounts, membership generally pays for itself in as little as two visits.
