Family Access Membership

Family Access Memberships are available to families that qualify through public assistance or education programs listed below.

• Family Access memberships start at a minimum of $15 per year.
• We ask that families pay much as they are able: $15, $25, $50, $75, $100 or $125.
• The $125 level includes reciprocal visitation benefits for free or reduced admission at many other museums.

Families who are able to pay more will allow us to serve more families in the Madison area. These discounted rates are made possible by community gifts to the annual Access for Everyone campaign.

Qualifying programs:

  • BadgerCare PLUS

  • SSI
  • Unemployment
  • WIC
  • Wisconsin Works (W2)/TANF

To renew an existing Family Access membership, you must still be enrolled in a qualifying program.  Upon renewal, 12 months will be added to your current membership.
