Give the gift of discovery this holiday season!

An MSI membership is the perfect gift for all the science enthusiasts on your list. They will receive a year of hands-on science discovery, wonder and many other notable benefits. This year we will be sending special certificates that you can print and give to your recipient or forward via email for them to print on their own time. These certificates and a photo ID are all your recipient needs to visit the Museum before their permanent cards arrive!

Gift memberships may be purchased online, over the phone by calling (773) 947-3161 or onsite—and no matter where the purchase is made a certificate will be sent! Membership welcome packets will be sent directly to the recipient within 4-6 weeks of purchase.

Please contact if you do not receive the certificate within 24 hours. 

One moment, please. Loading secure form…

If your recipient will visit the Museum before membership materials arrive (allow four to six weeks), presenting the membership certificate or email confirmation and an ID at the Entry Hall membership desk will be required to redeem member benefits.
