Membership

The Mia Membership Experience

Membership is all about you—your benefits, your activities, your interests. Use the benefits that work for you!

Priority Access to Special Exhibitions

Be among the first to see the season’s top exhibitions. All members receive free tickets during Mia member days, visit at your convenience and save on tickets. Contributor members save on tickets for themselves and their guests, or upgrade to the Investor or Partner level for free tickets daily, reciprocal benefits at partnering museums, and more!

Valuable Discounts

General admission is always free. Mia contributor members receive a 20% discount on exhibition tickets and a 10% discount on purchases in The Store at Mia starting at the Contributor level, as well as savings on talks and classes.

Insider Information

Watch your email for member-exclusive messages. Catch the latest about member days, access to special events, news about the museum, special shopping discounts, and other insider information.

Philanthropy

Your membership donation helps keep Mia free for visitors, provides art supplies for youth and adult classes, school busses and tours for student visitors, and helps to preserve and care for outstanding works of art.
