Give the gift of play! 

A membership to The ICM provides a full year of fun and learning.

Simply select the membership level you would like to give. We provide a PDF with a gift card code they can use when registering their membership (online or at the museum).

Why become a member?

Members get to play as often as they’d like!
On a rainy afternoon or the coldest days of winter, you’ll always have something fun to do.

Membership pays for itself!
The cost of a membership pays for itself in 4 visits, based on admission for a family of 4. Plus you get additional discounts at The ICM and other children’s museums!

Membership helps other families!
Member support helps us provide free outreach programs, free events, and so much more to the community.

Families come in all shapes and sizes!

If our membership options aren’t the right fit for your family, email memberships@theicm.org. We will do our best to find a solution that suits your needs.

Thanks to generous donors and volunteers, we can offer all memberships at a discounted price (actual costs of an average membership far exceed the price). Our ICM For Everyone program also offers free membership and admission for qualifying families.
