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. Members receive free general admission all year, event and camps discounts, and lots more.


This annual corporate membership offers businesses and their employees special benefits, along with the opportunity to show your company as a strong supporter of the arts, sciences, and culture of South Carolina.

Support the museum with a gift to the Annual Fund, the Reimagine the Experience capital campaign, learn more about Planned Giving and more.

Lead tours, assist with research or even help with administrative duties - the State Museum could not exist without our amazing volunteer team.
