Gift of Membership

Wrap Up a Time-traveling Adventure!

Memberships include free admission to the Museum and the Sea Center on Stearns Wharf, so you can give your friends and family an entire year of wonder, discovery, and nature.

With a gift membership, they can meet friendly sharks at the Sea Center, play in the Museum’s Backyard Creek, and flutter with the butterflies in summer. They’ll even roar with the dinosaurs this winter when we welcome back our popular outdoor exhibit Prehistoric Forest.

You can buy gift memberships two ways: on-site at the Museum or Sea Center or online. Please contact if you have questions or need help.

Gift memberships purchased on-site at the Museum or Sea Center can come beautifully packaged in a unique pillow box and ribbon, perfect for any holiday or special occasion. However, if you need to mail your gift membership and a box isn’t ideal, our Membership Department can simply send one of our dino-mite gift certificates in a festive envelope to you or to the recipient. Just indicate where you wish for it to go, whether you are purchasing on-site or using our online order form.
