Memberships offer savings, fun and unforgettable family experiences
A Museum membership is not only a great value, it's an ongoing reward that offers an opportunity to nurture family connections and investigate new experiences. A membership for a family of four will pay for itself within only three visits. Plus, you receive tons of great benefits, like our Discover-E-s e-newsletter, discounts at our Kid Spark™ store and participating partners and the opportunity to attend exclusive members-only events.
Memberships are also a great gift idea anytime of the year. Toys can be tossed aside when the novelty wears off, but a membership provides access to a stimulating and fun-filled experience 12 months a year. Take advantage of any of the Museum's membership benefits today!

Association of Children's Museum Reciprocal Program Changes
Minnesota Children’s Museum members who have a Passport Deluxe, Adventurer, Explorer, Discover or Children’s Circle membership will be affected by upcoming changes to the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) Reciprocal Program. Effective April 1, 2013, the program will change its name to the ACM Reciprocal Network, and will revise its reciprocal admission benefit. Starting April 1, 2013, members will receive 50% off general admission ticket rates for up to six people at participating museums. Members will no longer receive free admission. These changes will help create a more consistent network, reduce confusion at the ticket counter and eliminate any additional special restrictions that may currently be in effect at some museums.
Members who purchase or renew a membership that expires on or after April 30, 2013 will be affected by this change. Depending the expiration date, members will receive free admission for four people for part of their membership and then transition to 50% off up to six people for the remainder of their membership. Members who purchase or renew a membership that expires on or after April 30, 2014 will receive a full 12 months of 50% off admission for up to six people.
Exact benefits may be affected by purchase date. Please contact the Membership department with any questions 651-225-6000.
To receive free or discounted admission into an ACM Reciprocal Network museum, one named adult must be present and able to show a photo ID upon check in.
