Digital Membership Cards

As part of our commitment to sustainable practices, the Museum uses a faster and greener way to deliver membership benefits. Members have the opportunity to access their membership cards electronically. Digital membership cards will provide a more efficient and convenient way for Members to receive their cards, even getting their card the same day if they want! This environmentally friendly approach supports the Museum's vision to reduce our environmental footprint. Over time, this eliminates thousands of paper letters and envelopes and membership cards. You can, however, still request a paper membership card by contacting us as shown below.

Membership Levels

There are several levels of member support. If you are ready to join us (or to buy a gift membership), click the Level to get started.
