By becoming a member of The Historic New Orleans Collection, you are helping to meet the ever-increasing educational needs of the region. Your generosity supports internationally renowned exhibitions, popular publications, and educational outreach programs. In addition to receiving The Historic New Orleans Collection Quarterly, members will enjoy the following annual benefits:

• Subscription to The Collection’s donor newsletter
• Membership card
• 10% shop discount
• Unlimited guided tours of the History Galleries, Williams Residence, and current exhibitions (during regular business hours)
• Members-only trips, events, and exhibition previews

Memberships at the Founder Family level and above include benefits for an individual or couple and any children under 18 residing in a single household, or for one member and a guest.

By becoming a member at the $100 or greater level, in addition to the many benefits you will receive from The Collection, you can now enjoy the opportunity to be the guest of other leading museums throughout the United States.  This is possible due to The Collection’s membership in the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program.  Upon presentation of your membership card from one of the participating institutions, validated with the gold NARM sticker, you will receive the following*:

• Free/member admissions at all times during museum hours
•The same discount on purchases made on the premises of concert and lecture tickets, as offered of that museum
•The same discount on purchases made on the premises in the gift stores as those offered members of that museum

(*Note:  footnotes placed by the institutions name in the official NARM Listing may restrict some privileges)
