Membership

There are many benefits to being a member at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Your membership supports the Conservatory’s exhibitions, programs and community outreach initiatives. Join or renew at one of the several membership levels that is right for you.

All memberships were effectively put on hold on March 13, 2020, when the Conservatory closed for the public health emergency. All membership renewal dates will be extended by 3 months automatically.

Memberships purchased between March 13 2020 and June 12 2020 are valid for 12 months starting June 12 2020.

If your membership expired during our closure (March 13 – June 12) you may still visit the Conservatory with full member privileges. Your membership renewal will be extended for the time period your membership was still active while the Conservatory was closed.

  • If your membership expired on March 31, 2020, it will be extended to June 30, 2020.
  • If your membership expired on April 30, 2020, it will be extended to July 31, 2020.
  • If your membership expired on May 31, 2020, it will be extended to August 30, 2020.
  • If your membership expires on June 30, 2020 or after, your membership will be extended by 3 months.

Before visiting, please be sure to reserve your tickets online and bring your expired membership card and ID.

The best way to receive important membership updates is by email. Important updates include membership operations, Conservatory reopening dates, and upcoming exhibitions and events, including Member Previews. If you do not currently receive email notifications from the Conservatory, please contact membership@fpconservatory.org to be added to the mailing list.

Health & Safety Measures

New measures have been put in place to protect the health and safety of our members, guests, volunteers, and staff. Please review before visiting and contact the Membership department with any questions.
