Museum Memberships

Membership Extensions due to COVID-19

For Dual, Family Access, Family, and Family Plus memberships:

We want you to receive the full value of your membership. Active memberships were frozen in time as of March 13, 2020 — the day we closed our doors to the public. The amount of time you had left on your membership as of 3/13/2020 will be used as the amount of time remaining on your membership when we reopen our doors. So if, in March 2020, you had 3 months remaining until expiration/renewal, then when we reopen you will still have 3 months remaining on your membership.

In the interim, while we are closed, we will provisionally update the expiration date on your membership card so you can enjoy reciprocal benefits at other museums. Look for email communication about this.

For existing First-Time Parent memberships:

All First-Time Parent memberships in effect when we closed our doors on 3/13/2020 will expire when the child turns 18 months old, OR 3 months after we reopen our doors—whichever comes LATER. We know that the pandemic has kept us from the museum during these important early months. We want to see you again when our museum reopens so we are offering you extra time on your First Time Parent membership.

We’re sorry the pandemic has kept you from the museum through these important early months and want you to visit as soon as it’s safe to do so—so we’re offering extra time.

Thank you for your patience and your continued support for MCM. If you would like to support the museum now, please consider donating to the museum or renewing your membership early.
