Your Local Museum Can Introduce You to Others for Free As You Travel
Travel tickets can save you money when you travel and want to visit local museums, but your local museum membership can do the same. Check with your museum or museums you wish to visit to see if your local membership will help you travel abroad for free.
Many museums have partnership programs with similar museums in other cities. This means that your home membership will give you the option for free or at a discount while you are on vacation.
A few examples are the Association of Science and Technology Centers Passport Program, the De Young Art Museum’s Mutual Membership Program, the Met’s Partnership Program, and the North American Mutual Museum Association . If you’re interested, check with your museum’s Member Services department or visit their website for member benefits – they are probably listed there if there are partner museums. You can also visit the website of the museum you wish to visit to see if it has a list of partner membership fees. It will only take you a few minutes to check, but it can save your travel budget tremendously.
