Interested in offering a great benefit for your employees? Are you an organization that has off-site trips or groups that travel? Are you a library or other organization looking to add more benefits for your members? Consider getting a Shared Organization Membership!

By getting a Shared Organization Membership, you will receive one membership card you can lend to your employees, members, or supporters to gain temporary membership benefits at the MOST!

*Shared Organization Memberships can only be purchased by contacting our Membership Coordinator by email or phone at (315) 425-9068 x2101.

Are there any membership discounts? Yes! We currently offer membership discounts to veteran and active military personnel with valid ID, as well as many companies that sponsor exhibits and programs at the MOST. Contact us for a full list of offerings. Discounted memberships must be purchased in person.

How long does it take to get our membership cards? Your membership becomes active as soon as you register either online or with MOST staff in-person. You will receive your membership cards in the mail about 2-5 weeks after initially signing up. In the interim, you are welcome to visit the MOST and show your photo ID at the admissions desk.

Can I bring guests? Our Household Plus and Household Premier memberships include free additional guests with each visit. Please refer to membership benefits for the specific number of permitted guests.

Who can be included on my membership? Traditionally, a Household, Household Plus, and Household Premier membership includes two adults living in the same household and their children/grandchildren under 18. The MOST recognizes that not all households look the same, and we are happy to adjust your membership to fit your situation.

What happens if I do not have my membership card? If you have not received your membership card or forget it, no worries! We can check you in using your photo ID. If your membership card has been lost or stolen, please inform us as soon as possible so we can issue you a new one and void your old one.

I am a grandparent. Can I get a membership with my grandchildren? Absolutely! Grandparents can sign up for a Household, Household Plus, or Household Premier membership and include all grandchildren under age 18 on their membership.

Does my membership come with any reciprocal benefits? All of our membership levels come with reciprocal benefits of free or discounted admission to participating organizations of the Association of Science & Technology Centers (ASTC), which includes over 350 museums and science centers.

Our Household Premier membership comes with additional reciprocal benefits for participating organizations of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), the North American Reciprocal Museums (NARM) Association, the Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM), and the Empire State Museum Reciprocal Program (ESMRP), which includes discounted or free admission to an additional 1,600+ museums, galleries, and cultural centers around the world!

Please contact the specific organization(s) you plan on visiting before your trip to confirm reciprocal benefits.

Can I purchase a membership as a gift for someone else? Yes, of course! You can purchase a membership for a friend or family member online or in person. Membership cards will be processed and sent right to the recipient within 2-5 weeks of purchase.

I bought a gift membership. What happens next? When you bought the membership, you received an email receipt. You can forward this email to the recipient so they know you have given them a MOST membership! In 2-5 weeks after your purchase, the recipient will receive two membership cards in the mail.

I bought a MOST membership through Sweet Deals, Salt City Deals, or another third-party company. How do I redeem it? The third-party company will send you a paper coupon for the MOST membership. To activate the membership, you need to present the coupon to our Guest Services staff in-person at the museum.

Purchase or renew your membership online or at the museum. For more information, questions, or concerns, please contact our Membership Coordinator by email or phone at (315) 425-9068 x2101.
