Read about the North American Reciprocal Museum Association in the News

“This is a great program and a wonderful idea. It opens up a world of art to interested folks… when we might otherwise pass on by these gems. In fact, we take the NARM affiliation as an indication of merit and we have yet to be disappointed by what we have found in these great museums.”  – Members of the Albright Knox Art Museum in Buffalo, New York

The North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association is one of the largest reciprocal membership programs in the world! NARM has over 700 arts, cultural, and historical institutions along with botanical gardens, children’s museums, science and technology centers and more that offer their individual NARM qualified members reciprocal benefits.

It’s easy for individuals to participate!  Locate your favorite institution on the NARM Map and join them at the NARM level of membership. Then, simply present your valid membership card to any participating NARM institution to receive:

  • Free/member admission during regular museum hours
  • Member discounts at museum shops
  • Discounts on concert/lecture tickets*

Guests are not included unless they present a current membership card validated with the accepted NARM identification.  Family memberships are determined by each participating institution and it is recommended that you contact the institution you plan to visit prior to visiting to avoid any confusion.  *Note that some institutions restrict benefits. Contact the institution you plan to visit for more information.

Questions?  Address your questions to your local institution’s membership department and they will be happy to help you find best membership level for you!




Individuals interested in receiving reciprocal benefits should contact their local NARM affiliated institution for more information. They will be happy to answer all of your membership questions.

If your favorite institution is not a NARM member, please have them contact us for more information on how they can join!
