Membership

Welcoming Back our Members

Our members are our most loyal guests. We truly cannot wait to welcome you back — and will do so with great thought and care. As a special thank you for your patience during our temporary closure, we are offering members-only preview days on July 15 and 16, prior to the museum reopening to the public on July 17.

Making reservations – Members will continue to receive free admission. However, online reservations are required to manage limited capacity. A block of tickets will be set aside exclusively for members each day. When making your reservation, you will be prompted to enter your “Member ID.” This is the email address that is associated with your membership.

Membership extension – During this unprecedented closure period, we have introduced a policy adjustment that will extend your membership for the number of days the museum is closed due to COVID-19. New membership cards will not be sent out, but rest assured, the extension will be reflected in your onsite file.
