Museum Memberships

This Monday’s idea is particularly awesome because it actually inspired me to add some items to my CheckedTwice wishlist.  I often end up at the free museums in my town (which are fabulous) because I’m fundamentally cheap.  But what if someone got me a museum membership as a gift?

I would love it!  And I would totally use it! So here are some ideas for museum memberships you can buy your favorite cultured person (or perhaps favorite person-in-need-of-culture):

  • Art Museum
  • Children’s Museum
  • Natural History Museum
  • Science Museum
  • Zoo
  • Aquarium
  • Botanical Gardens

Memberships often include free admissions plus perks like holiday party invitations, exhibit opening parties, discounts at museum stores, and free guest passes.

And the list I gave above was just the generic list of museums you can find in many towns – don’t forget all the fun local options you may have:

  • National Museum of Funeral History – Houston
  • Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio – Chicago
  • National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame – Fort Worth
  • Cartoon Art Museum – San Francisco

And finally, remember that these memberships support the museum financially and make it possible for them to keep operating.  So you should feel good and so should the recipient.
