Savvy Santa’s give Museum membership
Holiday Membership Packages are memberships that come with a special gift for your recipient to unwrap.
We make special effort that your gift remains a surprise for your recipient. If you purchase online, you will rest assured that your gift membership will be mailed on Dec. 10*, for safe arrival by Dec. 25.
What comes with a Holiday Membership Package?
- Individual Museum Insider (suggested for households of any number adults) and Family Plus (households with children under 18) membership levels are great options for the Holiday package. View membership benefits here.
- Museum-designed 12 month calendar to look forward to a full year of museum experiences
- Beautiful metal keychain replicating Earth, Sea, Sky: Cycles of Alaska Seasons sculpture from the Museum lawn and a fun museum magnet
- Guarantee that we will not send the member newsletter or member mail to recipient regarding gift membership before Jan. 1, 2019. If you request “send to recipient”, the only thing we will send them before 2019 is their Holiday Membership Package on Dec. 10, 2018*.
- Extended membership expiration date to Dec. 31, 2019, as we know your recipient won’t be using their gift quite yet.
- Time-appropriate delivery—You like to finish your holiday shopping early, but you don’t want your recipient to receive their gift in November. We send all online-purchased Holiday Gift Packages on Dec. 10*.
- Perfect for last-minute shoppers! If purchased on-site, you can take home Holiday Package immediately.

When will my Holiday Membership Package be mailed?
|PURCHASE DATE||MAIL DATE|
|Before Dec. 9||Dec. 10, 2018|
|Between Dec. 9-19||Dec. 20, 2018|
|After Dec. 19||Jan. 3, 2019|
Due to unforeseeable delays with post office, we unfortunately cannot guarantee delivery by specific dates. USPS guarantees delivery by Dec. 25 for 1st Class packages postmarked by Dec. 20.
Can I have my gift recipient pick up their membership at the front desk?
You can arrange for this over the phone. The package must be picked up by Feb. 28, 2019.
What are my shipping options for the Holiday Membership Package?
All Holiday Gift Membership Packages are sent in a small flat rate box via USPS.
Do I need my recipient’s contact information to give them a Holiday Membership Package?
Yes, your recipient’s mailing address, email, and phone number are needed to complete the membership transaction. It may be tempting to use your own contact information in place of your gift recipient’s, but please do not do this. Using your contact information will cause issues when your recipient tries to use their membership, and it will delay/prevent delivery of the Holiday Membership Package.
What if I want to use the Holiday Membership Package in a gift exchange, and I don’t know who will receive it?
This option is available under some circumstances. Please contact the membership office at (907) 929-9228.
Can I have the Holiday Membership Package membership sent to me?
Yes. Select “Send to giver” on the online membership form.
Do I need to provide my contact information?
Yes. The museum needs your mailing address, email, and phone number to contact you in case there is an issue with your gift membership and to send you your tax receipt.
What happens if my gift recipient already has a membership?
If your gift recipient already has a membership, 12 months of membership are added onto their existing expiration date. Memberships are not refundable or transferable.
