Gift Membership Details

 

Can I send my gift membership directly to the recipient?

Yes. During the purchase process, you’ll be asked if the membership is a gift and where it should be sent. You’ll then have the choice between sending the membership package to yourself or directly to the recipient family. You’ll also have the option to include a special messages with your order.

When can my gift recipient start using their membership?

Gift Memberships are active as soon as you complete your purchase. Gift Membership purchased between October and January received an expiration date of 1/31/23 or later. This allows for time between purchase and gifting to ensure a full 12 months of play. If the family you gifted would like to visit right away, they can bring an ID to the museum box office to receive their membership cards.

Will they lose any time if I renew it now?

A gift membership always provides a full year of membership. If a current membership is still active, an additional year will be added to the account, extending the expiration date by 12 months.

Current members can extend their membership’s expiration date by 12 months at any time during the year. Renewing early is a great option for members who want to take advantage of any special offers they have received.

Please call 651-225-6000 and a membership and sales assistant can confirm whether the family has a membership with Minnesota Children’s Museum. In order to confirm an existing account, we will need the first and last name of an adult in the family, as well as an address or phone number.
