Did you know that Framingham State University students, faculty, and staff have free access to three of the region's prominent museums? Don't miss a great opportunity to see world-class art exhibitions at no cost!

Museum of Fine Arts Boston

Visit the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston's Back Bay. The MFA is the fifth largest museum in the United States, featuring more than 450,000 works of art. Students, faculty and staff get free access when they present their FSU ID with the MFA sticker, which can be obtained on campus at the Game Room, Library Circulation Desk, and the ID Office in the McCarthy Center.  The sticker offers free admission into the museum, however, it does not cover any additional costs associated with special exhibits.

Institute of Contemporary Art Boston

The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) is located in Boston's Seaport and is the city's leading center of contemporary culture. The exhibition program features artists from all over the world, and in their galleries visitors are just as likely to see an incredible painting as cutting-edge performance art. Students, faculty and staff gain free access by presenting their FSU ID. The University's membership includes free guided tours for large groups of students and student-rate pricing on tickets to ICA-produced public programs, performances, and films. University Membership does not include free admission for ticketed special events.
