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:
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. Present your Children’s Museum membership card at any of the 200 reciprocal museums across the country to 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.

- You+Me: 2 named adult cardholders
- Fun Four: 3 named adult cardholders

There MUST be at least one named adult member on each membership. This adult member is referred to 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.
Children’s Museum membership does NOT include private playdates or birthday parties, nor does it 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.
