An Academy membership makes it easy to visit the museum you love, all year long. And since most memberships pay for themselves in 2-3 visits, it's also a smart investment. Whether you join to enjoy the perks or to contribute to our mission—or both!—we're excited to help you make the most of your membership.

Ready to join? Click the "Purchase" button next to the membership level of your choice and then create an account to complete your transaction.
