Membership Levels and Benefits

Please note:  You will be asked to provide a Photo ID each time you visit MHCM.  Please make sure your name on your membership card matches your name as it appears on your Photo ID.

Important COVID-19 Update:

Please note that all active MHCM memberships were frozen on March 15, 2020 – the date we closed – and will be unfrozen when we reopen.  This ensures that all MHCM members retain the balance of time and benefits remaining on their membership once we are able to welcome you and your little ones back inside the museum. Due to our closure, we have had to pause our participation in ACM and ASTC reciprocal programs since we are unable to welcome members from other participating museums.  Upon reopening, we will be rejoining these programs.

By renewing your membership now, you will be providing MHCM with critical funding to support our reopening efforts.
