Membership


Membership matters at the MFA!

For the price of a few visits, you can become a member of the Museum and enjoy it all year long. You’ll also enjoy free admission throughout the year at many reciprocal museums and special member discounts, including:

  • 10% off lunch at the MFA Café
  • 10% off merchandise at the Museum Store
  • Special discounts on events, studio art classes, workshops and lectures

In addition to seeing the legendary permanent collection as often as you like, you’ll also get to see the many different traveling exhibits throughout the year. As a member, you’ll also be invited to exclusive previews of new exhibits and receive advance announcements of concerts, lectures and educational programs.

Best of all, you’ll be providing vital support to the arts here in Tampa Bay – your membership helps to bring in world-class exhibits and programming that benefit the whole community.

Please review the full benefits and membership levels below. For a small annual fee, you can also supplement your membership by joining the support group of your choice, giving you exclusive admission to exciting events, additional discounts and more.
