Enhance Your Membership!
These membership upgrades increase the flexibility and value of your membership. Upgrade your membership at any time. Limit one add-on per membership and one use per day.
Add-a-Guest ($35) This upgrade allows members to bring one guest free-of-charge when visiting the museum. The guest does not need to be the same person each time this feature is used. An adult not named to the membership may use this feature to bring the member’s children to the museum without the named adult member present. Membership card must be presented at the time of admission.
Nanny Card ($35) An extra card can be issued with your nanny or caregiver’s name so they can escort your children to the museum. Nanny must be 18 years or older and care for your children only. Limit one nanny card per membership. Nanny must provide photo ID at each visit. The nanny card currently cannot be purchased online. If you are interested in this option, please visit the museum admissions desk or contact the membership office.
