When you join the members of The Historic New Orleans Collection, you support internationally renowned exhibitions, special lectures and symposia, high-quality publications, and vital educational programs. See the outline below of the benefits available at various levels of membership. Memberships at the Founder Family level and above include benefits for up to two adults and any children under 18 residing in a single household, or for one member and a guest. Please note membership is non-transferable.

August is New Orleans Museum Month and that makes it a great time to become a member of THNOC! This annual program allows members of one participating organization to enjoy a month of complimentary admission for two adults at all other participating institutions. THNOC is among 25 cultural attractions in the city participating  this year, and our membership plans start at $45 per year per person ($75 per year per household). So, if you love New Orleans history and you love museums, consider becoming a member of THNOC today to enjoy the added benefits of New Orleans Museum Month. 

By supporting The Historic New Orleans Collection at the $100 or greater level, in addition to the many benefits you will receive from THNOC, you can enjoy member privileges at other leading museums throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond thanks to THNOC’s membership in the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program. Upon presentation of your membership card from THNOC, validated with a NARM sticker, you will receive free admission during museum hours as well as discounts on special events and gift shop merchandise.

You may charge your membership to your MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover credit card via your My HNOC account. For questions or to join by phone, please contact the Office of Development and Community Relations at (504) 598-7109.
