Find cultural and educational experiences at places you may not have even known existed, whenever you travel, with a NARM level membership. We’re so glad you’re considering joining the NARM Association! First thing’s first: the NARM Association operates using a member institution network. With that said, membership looks a bit different for individuals and institutions.

INDIVIDUAL & FAMILY MEMBERSHIP: Access over 1,000 Cultural Institutions with a NARM Level Membership.

A NARM level membership means that you are supporting your favorite cultural institution while also receiving select membership benefits at all NARM member institutions across North America. Individuals and families simply find a NARM participating institution and join them in order to receive NARM reciprocal benefits.

Search the member map or download the NARM member list to find participating NARM institutions and be sure to join at the NARM level of membership. Once you have enrolled and you receive your membership cards from your home institution, you are all set to explore!

Here is what you will receive:

  • Free member admission during regular museum hours to participating NARM institutions
  • Member discounts at museum shops
  • Discounts on concert/lecture tickets

Guests are not included unless they present a current membership card validated with the accepted NARM identification.

Contact the institution you plan to visit prior to visiting in order to understand the benefits you will receive at that institution and to avoid any confusion.

Please note that family memberships are determined by each participating institution. While NARM does not have a standard area of restriction, some institutions do restrict benefits. See our member map for more details.
