Membership – Enjoy Benefits and Support the Museum

Even though the museum’s doors may be temporarily closed, membership is still a great way to enjoy special benefits and support the museum during this challenging time. By becoming a member or renewing now, you can help the museum weather this storm and stay committed to our mission to bring entertaining and engaging content to our visitors.

  • Expiration dates for new membership purchases and membership renewals will be extended to reflect the duration of the closure, so no one will lose any time on their year of benefits.

  • Members can enjoy early access and registration to some of the museum’s new virtual programs and content: online tours, 360 degree interactive exhibit, museum curated blogs, videos and more.

  • Once the museum re-opens, members will receive free admission to new exhibits, including A Voice of Her Own: South Carolina Women in Politics. Plus, free and discounted show and events, exclusive members-only programs, discounts on museum camps and more all year long.

See below to fully explore your membership options. We hope you and your family stay safe and healthy and we can’t wait to see you at the museum again soon.

South Carolina State Museum membership is a great way enjoy a full year of museum programs, exhibitions, events, discounts and more, all while helping to support the museum and its mission to educate and inspire.
