Become a Member

Join us! When you become involved with us through our programs, events and collections, you will experience the joy of discovery. Framingham is filled with rich history and we learn more about it daily.

Your membership support is important to us and to the community. When you join us your “sense of history” and “sense of place” are strengthened through reading our publications, voting to save our historic buildings, sharing your memories at our programs, or volunteering. This new-found knowledge is not only a benefit to you and your family but to Framingham. A community’s “collective memory” is essential to how it defines itself and is integral to the cultural fabric of the town.

This is a fun place to belong. We have devoted staff, volunteers and members whose excitement over their research on collections or programs is contagious. We provide programs and exhibits that are available year-round and open to all, and our commitment to preservation keeps our historic buildings standing proudly. Join us today and enjoy these benefits as well as the knowledge that you are helping to support your community.
