Group Memberships and Libraries

Group Memberships and associated benefits/passes only apply for an entity’s employees, NOT library patrons or the public. We welcome libraries to share more information with their patrons about our Access for Everyone programs to learn about reduced price admissions.

Currently, our other membership policies do not provide memberships for libraries to purchase for their patrons to use. If patrons are interested in visiting the museum, we have personal/individual memberships at various levels including our Access for Everyone program starting as low as $15 for the year 

If you have any questions or would like to enroll by phone or email, please contact our membership department by email, or by phone at (608) 256-6445 ext. 550.
