Will the admission price be refunded if I join or renew my membership when visiting the museum?

If you have already paid the admission fee but would like to purchase a membership on the same day, please present your admission receipt when purchasing the membership and that fee will be deducted.

How will the museum use my contact information?

Your information is confidential and will not be shared with any third party. Your contact information is used for museum membership updates, event invitations, building updates and collections information.

How do I update my contact information?

We love to know when your contact information has changed from the information you provided on the membership application. We want to keep you abreast of the latest museum news via mail and email. Please call our membership department at 303.832.8576 x100 or email to update your contact information.

If I want my membership to include two people, which membership should I choose?

This depends on the kind of guests you would like attached to your membership. The Dual membership ($75) is valid for two individuals at the same address, who may then attend museum events separately and each receive our emails. The Individual + Guest ($60) membership is for you and any guest, but the guest may not attend an event without you, and in most cases will need to purchase a non-member ticket for special events.

Do I receive a card(s) with my membership? How long does it take to receive the card(s)?

You will receive cards with your membership. These cards will be sent to the mailing address listed on your application. The number of cards you receive depends on the level of membership you decide to purchase. Individual and Individual + Guest members will receive one card. Dual members and above will receive up to two cards (two names must be specified on the application in order to receive two cards). The number of guests that members may bring depends on the membership level. Members will not receive cards for their guests, and therefore must be present for their guest to receive free admission during public hours. Membership cards are individually printed in-house so please allow 1-2 weeks for your membership cards to arrive in the mail. 

Is a portion of my membership tax deductible?

Yes! For membership levels through the Arts & Crafts level, your membership is fully tax deductible. For memberships at the Art Nouveau level and higher, you will receive catalogs and/or books as a benefit of your membership. The tax-deductible portion of these higher level memberships is the membership price less the value of the materials you receive.

The tax-deductible portion of your membership will be outlined in the membership letter sent to you after purchase.

If you would like your membership to be fully tax-deductible for the Art Nouveau level and above, please let us know that on your membership application and we will not send the corresponding material items.

I never received or have lost my membership card(s). What should I do?

All members are recorded in our membership database, and therefore can continue to receive benefits such as free admission without a card present. However, we do encourage members to present their cards when visiting. If you would like to request a replacement card, please contact the membership department at 303.832.8576 x100 or email us at
