Become A Member and Support Our Community’s Children’s Museum 

The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. As a result, we rely on the philanthropic generosity of our community and revenue from museum membership and daily ticket sales to present exhibits and programs encouraging curiosity and creativity.

Children’s Museum membership benefits 

When you become a member, you receive benefits including free admission to the Children’s Museum all year long as well as members-only mornings and discounted admission to annual events. Additionally, your support helps the Children’s Museum continue to offer quality programming in the years to come, meeting its mission to inspire a lifelong love of learning in our community’s children. 

All Children’s Museum members enjoy these benefits: 

  • Free admission during regular, open days
  • Exclusive entrance to the museum during our Sunday Member Mornings 
  • $2.00 discounts on each admission for up to six additional guests 
  • Discounted rates on Gift Corner purchases, Private Playdates, birthday parties, and admission to select events 
  • $1.00 discounts on each admission for up to four persons to the Schulz Museum and Snoopy’s Home Ice Arena 

The Fun Four and higher-level memberships include reciprocal privileges with the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM). The ACM Reciprocal Network is a voluntary network of museums that reciprocate discounted admission to one another’s premium members. If you present your Children’s Museum membership card at any of the 200 reciprocal museums across the country, you can receive 50% off general admission for up to six (6) people, including the cardholder. Check out Find A Children’s Museum for a complete list of ACM Reciprocal children’s museums as well as rules regarding visitation. 

Please note: ACM reciprocal benefits are not included with the You+Me membership.

Children’s Museum membership policies

Each Children’s Museum membership level allows a specified number of adult cardholders to be listed as named members: 

  • You+Me: 2 named adult cardholders (1 adult & 1 child per visit)
  • Fun Four: 3 named adult cardholders 
  • Super Six: 4 named adult cardholders 

Each membership mush MUST have at least one named adult member on each membership. We will refer to this adult member as the primary cardholder. Only the primary cardholder can make changes to the list of other named members. 

Other named members must be related adults or a caregiver for the primary cardholder’s children. For the purposes of this membership, a “related adult” is defined as a spouse or partner of the primary cardholder, living in the same household; an ex-spouse; a grandparent; an aunt or an uncle. A caregiver is defined as an unrelated adult who regularly cares for the primary adult cardholder’s children. 

At least one of the named adult members must be present with a valid photo ID to check in and receive member benefits. 

Children’s Museum membership does NOT include admission to special events but may include discounted admission. 

Membership does NOT extend to private parties or events. Furthermore, it does NOT cover admission to the museum during these events for guests or hosts. 

Children’s Museum memberships are non-transferrable, non-refundable, and may not be re-sold. 

Adults visiting the Children’s Museum, whether or not they have a membership, must be accompanied by at least one child under the age of 18 years old unless previously planned and allowed by museum staff.  

We will ask any members or guests of a member who conduct themselves in a manner deemed discourteous or dangerous to the health and safety of other guests or staff to leave the facility. 

Should you fail to comply with the posted rules and membership policies of the Children’s Museum, we may terminate your membership without refund. 

In reference to these terms and benefits, the Children’s Museum reserves the right to make changes at any time.
