Member Appreciation Days Are Here!

This weekend twenty of southern California’s finest cultural institutions join together to honor their members. Show an active membership card from any of the participating museums and gain entry to all the others at no charge. What’s more, you’ll also receive significant savings in the museums’ gift shops. 

The timing of this event couldn’t be better. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, you now have the opportunity to find a unique gift and save money in the process. Equally as compelling, Member Appreciation Day affords you the chance to explore a museum or institution that you’ve wondered about but never visited.

If you’re not a member of any of the organizations listed below, this is the perfect time to join one. Support the museum or institution of your choice and enjoy this special benefit!
