Museum Membership Month!

Sacramento Area Museums are proud to present a variety of special membership opportunities during Museum Membership Month happening in March 2024. The benefits of museum membership often extend well beyond a financial savings and often include exclusive experiences only available to members. Plus, there’s something for everyone – fine art, science, history, and culture – as the local museum community offers memberships at virtually every museum and/or destination.

Sacramento Children’s Museum

During the month of March, the community can apply the code SCM20 during checkout, whether on-site or online, to enjoy a $20 discount on any new or renewed membership. Sacramento Children's Museum memberships provide free admission to the museum for an entire year, member exclusive events, and more. For more information including membership benefits and levels
