Frequently Asked Questions

Click below to see FAQs about Corporate Memberships

How is a corporate membership different than a corporate sponsorship?

A corporate membership offers less recognition than a sponsorship and no tax benefits. Businesses and organizations become members so that their employees get the benefit of enjoying the museum’s offerings, whereas businesses who sponsor are more interested in the philanthropic nature of sponsorship and the accompanying public recognition.

How is a corporate membership different from a personal membership?

The primary difference between corporate and personal memberships is that corporate memberships may be “checked-out” and utilized by any employee, while personal memberships have a fixed list of people who may use them and cannot be shared between households. Corporate memberships also do not include reciprocal admission benefits at participating organizations in the ASTC or ACM networks.

Do I have to be Madison-based to be eligible for corporate membership?

Not at all! We are proud to offer memberships to businesses and companies across the State of Wisconsin and beyond.

Do I have to be a certain type of business to be eligible?

No. Our members range from for-profit businesses to non-profit community entities.

How long do corporate memberships last?

Your membership benefits are available for one year. Adult Swim and complimentary museum tickets will expire on the date indicated on each pass (no less than one year for the start of your membership benefits).

If I pay for a corporate membership in one year, does it automatically renew the following year?

No. We do not automatically renew your corporate membership from one year to the next. We will reach out to you roughly two months before your membership expires to check-in about renewing for the next year.

Can I be a corporate member and a corporate sponsor at the same time?

Absolutely! Depending on the size of your gift, we can split your gift so that you can get the benefits you desire of the corporate membership and the benefits of the corporate sponsor that you desire. It’s best to give us a call at (608) 354-0534 if you’re interested in this option to talk through the options.  

What is the difference between membership passes and complimentary museum tickets?

Corporate membership passes are reusable cards for any current employee and grant admission for up to six people at one time. The cards can be checked out through your HR department or given to specific employees at your discretion.

Complimentary museum tickets can be used to supplement your available membership cards during high employee demand, used as prizes, or shared with patrons/customers/clients.

My company has a corporate membership. What do I need to bring when I visit?

You must bring a physical corporate membership card or a complimentary museum ticket with you when visiting the museum. Contact your company’s representative to pick up the card you need prior to your visit. You do not need to present your employee ID at our front desk.

Can I use my employee ID instead of the corporate membership card when I visit?

No, you must present the corporate membership card when you visit.

Are there reciprocal benefits to other museums with a corporate membership? 

No, there are no reciprocal benefits to other museums with a corporate membership. Reciprocal benefits are available to individual memberships only. Select personal memberships with reciprocal benefits can be purchased at a 10% discount by employees of a corporate member.

What other benefits are available?

Starting at $1,000, additional benefits of a corporate membership can include invitations to special access events and/or invitations to new exhibit openings. We will communicate with your company representative in advance of eligible special events as they arise.
