University Membership

Designed with both the individual and institution in mind, the University Membership Program provides affordable access to the Museum, public programs, special exhibitions, and educational resources that enrich student learning, enhance course goals, and provide professional development.

Benefits may be offered to students and/or faculty and staff. Free admission and discounted tickets are available through school-specific promo codes. The Museum currently has timed entry admission and we ask that you book your ticket ahead of time using the promo code for your school. Remember to enter your promo code first before adding tickets to your cart.  Students can use the Student price ticket and Faculty and Staff can use the Adult price ticket for their free admission ticket. 

Contact your Student Life or Admissions Office to get the promo code. Once you have your promo code visit the ticketing page here, enter the code and click submit. Advance tickets for timed entry are required. Please book your ticket in advance of your visit using the promo code for your school.
