Curators Circles: Conservation and Collections

Celebrate the work of Conservation and Scientific Research in caring for and preserving the Museum’s collections for future generations. Join us for intimate programs that offer close looking at original works from the MFA, delve into current research and explore treatment approaches and decision-making, and present stimulating dialogue between conservators and colleagues from across the Museum. Your membership supports research trips, travel for staff to share results and collaborate with colleagues, as well as paid internships to train the next generation of conservators.

Annual membership is $1,500.*
