Frequently Asked Questions

How does an individual or family join?

To receive NARM benefits as an individual or family simply find your favorite NARM member institution. Visit their website, call or drop by to learn about their NARM level memberships. Once you join a participating NARM institution you will receive membership cards directly from them validated with the NARM identification and you are ready to explore our vast network!

How do I find a NARM member institution?

You can find a NARM institution on our member map by searching for its name, city, state, or ZIP Code. You can enter a radius if you need to search a certain area, or even search by category.

Where can I find the most updated list of participating NARM institutions?

There are two ways to see the list of NARM member institutions.  First, you can view the member map.  You may also download and print a list of all NARM member institutions.

I have not received my membership card yet or lost my membership card. How do I get a replacement?

You should contact your home institution for your membership cards. You can locate their website and phone number by searching the name of the institution on the member map.

I searched the NARM institutions map and found an institution with asterisks beside its name. What does that mean?

  • One asterisk indicates that NARM privileges may be restricted for concerts/lectures/special exhibitions and ticketed events.
  • Two asterisks indicate that NARM privileges do not extend to other institutions members within a 15-mile radius.
  • Three asterisks indicate that NARM privileges do not extend other institutions members within a 15-mile radius and may be restricted for concerts/lectures/special exhibitions and ticketed events.

What does “**NARM privileges do not extend to members with a different home institution within a 15 mile radius.” mean?

The 15-mile restriction applies to any institution which is within 15 miles of the institution with the restriction.

To determine if the restriction applies to you ask: Are you a member of an institution within 15 miles of the institution with the restriction?  If the answer is “yes” then your NARM benefits will be restricted.  If the answer is “no” then the restrictions do not apply and you should receive reciprocal membership benefits if you present a valid membership card from your home institution with the NARM identification.
