Membership dues directly support the Anchorage Museum’s programs, exhibits, and facility, and are partially tax deductible.

To make your gift even more meaningful, you can also purchase:

Plan ahead:

  • If you purchase a plastic card, please allow 1 month for membership card printing and mailing
  • When gifting a membership, on the membership form, either select "send membership card to gift recipient" for a purchased plastic card ($5 fee); OR select "send digital membership card to gift recipient” to gift a digital card (no additional cost)
  • Gift recipient will not receive digital membership card unless their email is provided

Museum membership also makes an excellent last-minute gift

  • Memberships are active immediately upon payment
  • Gift recipient will receive their digital membership card within 3 business days


Renewing their membership adds 12 months to their existing membership.

Your gift recipient’s expiration date will be 12 months from the date of the membership transaction.

If you choose to upgrade or downgrade their membership, their new level’s membership benefits replace last year’s benefits immediately.

February-October, please allow 2 weeks for the plastic membership card to be received. November-January, membership cards may take up to 3 weeks to be received. If your gift is time-sensitive, it is recommended that you purchase the gift 1 month in advance.

When you select “send membership card to gift recipient”, their digital card will be sent in 2-3 business days.

When you select “send membership card to gift giver”, their digital card will not be sent until requested.

Select “send membership card to gift giver” so that your gift recipient will not receive their digital membership card until requested, and so that their plastic membership card will be sent to you.

Please note that membership benefits are active as soon as the gift membership is paid for. Your gift recipient will continue to receive the e-newsletter and membership benefit emails.

Mid-term upgrades can be purchased over the phone or at the front desk. You would pay the difference between the membership levels. Upgraded benefits start immediately upon payment. Their membership expiration date will stay the same.
