Give the Gift of Membership

Give a gift they’ll always treasure: a year of wonder and fun. One size fits all.

Special Holiday Collectible Gift

When you share the amazing benefits of MSI membership this holiday season, your lucky recipient can select a special gift: the choice of a limited-edition ornament or an MSI-themed notecard collection. They can pick up their gift at the Museum.

Holiday Gift Processing

Due to longer-than-normal processing time during the holidays, MSI cannot guarantee delivery of membership cards in time for a particular holiday. However, a welcome letter announcing the new membership will be sent to the gift recipient within two weeks of your purchase, and can immediately be used (with I.D.) for entry to the Museum. To ensure delivery of the welcome letter by Hanukkah, please order no later than November 20. For Christmas or Kwanzaa, please order by December 11.

Please complete the form below to purchase up to three gift memberships. For four or more gifts, please call (773) 947-3161.

One moment, please. Loading secure form…

If your recipient will visit the Museum before membership materials arrive (allow four to six weeks), presenting the welcome letter and an ID at the Entry Hall Membership Desk will be required for admission.
