Membership has its benefits…

Don’t Visit DC Often?

You don’t have to be a DC resident to appreciate the benefits of a membership with the National Museum of Women in the Arts. We have members that live all over the country and even all over the globe. In fact only about 25% of our members live in the DC metro area. Many of our more distant members support the Museum because they believe in the mission of bringing recognition to the achievements of women artists. But there is another reason to be a member of the Museum! If you join at the $100 Friend level or above you receive reciprocal admission to over 450 Museums throughout the country as well as in Bermuda, Canada, El Salvador and Mexico. The North American Reciprocal Membership Program also extends discounts like those offered to NMWA members on purchases made on the premises in the gift shop as well as on concert and lecture tickets of the participating museums! While there are too many museums to list them all, we have highlighted a few here:

Birmingham, Alabama : Birmingham Museum of Art

Anchorage, Alaska: Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center
