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.
