8 Reasons to Give a Gift Membership
Looking for the perfect gift for a special family in your life? Give the gift of play with a membership to Minnesota Children’s Museum. There are so many reasons to give a museum membership this holiday season. Here are the top eight:
1. It’s unlimited fun for an entire year
An annual membership to the museum provides the whole family with free admission for 12 months. That means they can play, pretend, explore, create and enjoy everything the museum has to offer for an entire year. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!
2. Play builds strong brains and bodies
Our museum is intentionally designed to let kids take the lead. Kids have the space and freedom to explore their interests and build skills that help them thrive in school and throughout life – skills like confidence, coordination, critical and creative thinking, communication and more.
3. It provides a great play space during inclement weather
Whether it’s rain, snow or uncomfortable temperatures, Minnesota weather can make outside play difficult at times. A museum membership offers the flexibility of having a play space available whenever it’s needed.
4. Families bond and make memories at the museum
When parents and caregivers play with their kids, it strengthens the bond between them. Our museum offers the perfect space for family togetherness away from the distractions of home and the pressure of school work. Parents often discover something new about their kids when they visit, and families build memories that last a lifetime.
5. Experiences make the best gifts
Rather than giving kids more toys and electronics, give them the excitement that comes from an experiential gift. Kids will love the larger-than-life experiences the museum provides and will want to come back to revisit their favorite exhibits and activities. Imagine knowing that your gift will bring joy and be used again and again for an entire year.
6. Members get special perks
Museum members get access to members-only nights, where members can explore all their favorite exhibits after regular hours. Members also get discounted pricing on special events and camps, discounts to the museum café and store, reduced pricing on guest admission tickets, as well as discounts to other local family attractions and children’s museums around the country.
7. There’s always something new to see or do at the museum
Exhibits and activities are always rotating and changing—so there’s always something new for kids and families to discover and explore at the museum. Upcoming special exhibits include Wild Kratts: Creature Power, opening in February 2024, Monsters on Summer Vacation, coming in summer 2024, and Curious George: Let’s Get Curious, coming fall 2024. We also have exciting updates in the works for some of our permanent exhibits, including a new pretend vet clinic and fire station updates in Our World.
8. Membership helps keep the museum strong
The museum is a nonprofit organization that relies on memberships to help pay for the experiences and staff that make every visit special. Members are the heart and soul of the museum. Members ensure that the museum will continue to spark children’s learning through play for years to come.
