Membership Update

As the Museum continues to grow, renovate and introduce new exhibits and programs, we are looking to our members for support. In order to continue to offer exciting programming to our community, we will be increasing membership costs for the 2019 membership year. The increase will amount to $5/person. Members will be entitled to free entry to all opening receptions, most Museum events and 10% off merchandise. As an incentive for joining or renewing your membership prior to 12/13/18, members will receive a new Somerville Museum tote bags!
