Gift Memberships

Treat your friends and family to a year of museum visits, exhibitions, special events, discounts, and much more!

All memberships include free parking in the Museum Garage, savings on education classes and select programs – plus discounts on shopping, dining, movies and mini-golf at the Nelson-Atkins.

All memberships last a full twelve months and benefits are activated at the date of purchase. Some benefits, such as the number of allotted tickets and cardholders vary by level.

Memberships are processed and delivered every three weeks. Please make your purchase online by December 1, 2020 to ensure shipping before Christmas 2020.

Concerned about the snail-mail over the holidays?
Visit the museum in person to purchase a gift of membership during museum hours in Bloch Lobby and pick up a personalized package for your recipient.
