Membership makes a difference! 

The Museum is the perfect place to visit to connect, reflect, and be inspired—and the best way to experience everything we have to offer is as a member! Members receive unlimited FREE admission to the Museum, along with other exciting benefits, including 10% off in our Museum Store, invitations to members-only events (virtual events for now!) and exclusive discounts on our innovative experiential cinema and new media programming.

And best of all, members make everything we do possible! Joining, renewing, or or gifting a membership directly supports the arts in our community. Memberships go towards staffing costs, the care and maintenance of the art in our collections, community partnerships, programming and more.
