Try Before You Buy
Not positive that a membership is right for your family? Take advantage of our TKT program! Come to the Museum and have fun. Try us out! But hold on to your receipt for tickets you purchased that day! You can use the money you paid for tickets that day and apply it toward any of our memberships. For example, if you spent $59.75 on tickets (which would be the cost of five tickets) you'd give your receipt to a staff member at the ticket desk and pay just $35.25 to start the membership that day.
