Reciprocal Benefits (NARM)

Crocker members at the Associate level and higher receive membership cards with reciprocal museum programs listed, including the North American Reciprocal Museums (NARM), The Reciprocal Organization of Associated Members (ROAM) and the Art Museum Reciprocal Network (AMRN) , which give the cardholders:

  • FREE admission at all times during museum hours to more than 750 museums in the U.S.
  • The same DISCOUNT on purchases made on the premises in the gift store or on concert and lecture tickets, as those offered to members of that museum*

If you are currently at the Associate level or higher, you can request updated cards that will include stickers for the two new reciprocal programs. There are three options:

3. Visit the Admission Desk to receive temporary cards marked with the three reciprocal programs. You will receive updated permanent cards within two to three weeks of your visit. Do you want to receive reciprocal benefits? Visit crockerart.org or contact the Membership Office to upgrade your membership to the Associate level or higher.

Membership FAQ & Support

The following are frequently asked questions by Crocker Art Museum members. If your question remains unanswered or you need to update your contact information, email the Membership Office or call 916.808.6730 (Tueday – Friday, 10 AM to 2 PM).

Membership Benefits

Is my membership tax-deductible?
Depending on your level of membership, your donation is either fully or partially tax-deductible. For the Individual through Associate levels of membership, your membership is 100% tax-deductible. Higher levels of membership have varying amounts of deductibility. Click here for complete details.
Can I get into other museums for free using my Crocker membership card?
Members at the Associate level and higher enjoy benefits at select museums as part of the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program, including free admission and discounts on purchases made at participating museums' stores. Please note that privileges may be restricted for special exhibitions; we recommend you call the museum before visiting. Click here [http://207.7.95.37/narm-alias-2] to view a complete list of more than 750 participating museums across the country, including the de Young Museum and Legion of Honor in San Francisco, the California State Railroad Museum, and the San Jose Museum of Art.
What exhibitions will be at the Crocker, and will there be member previews for them?
Visit our website regularly for upcoming exhibitions. For select exhibitions, we will have members-only events, which can include exhibition previews, art-making activities, artist demonstrations, curator talks, music, and more. Watch your (e)mail for invitations to upcoming members-only events.
Which programs are free to members?
The Crocker regularly offers programs free to members, including Art Mix and family activities like Art Blast, Sketch It, and Wee Wednesday. Free member events are listed in ArtLetter magazine, the Art Interactive program guide, and eLetter.
How many program tickets can I purchase at the member price?
The number of tickets you can purchase at the member price is equal to the number of guests your membership level admits. Additional guest tickets must be purchased at the nonmember price. For example, if you are at the Dual/Family level and bring three friends to a ticketed program, two of those guests can get the member rate. Please note that guest passes are not accepted for ticketed programs.
How many guests can I bring to special events?
Guest privileges vary depending on the type of event; please see your invitation for details.
I have old guest passes. Can I still use them?
Guest passes have an expiration date and should be used before they expire. If you have a guest pass that does not have an expiration date, you may still redeem it.
What is the difference between "guest passes" and the number of guests my membership level admits?
Each membership level has different guest benefits. In order for your guests to enjoy the free general admission privileges connected to your membership, you (or the other cardholder) must be present. Guest passes are an exception. Members at the Contributor level and higher receive guest passes when joining or renewing. Each guest pass may be used for a one-time free admission during regular Museum hours, whether or not the member is present. Guest passes are not valid for special events or ticketed programs like concerts, films, and lectures. (Guest passes may be used for programs that are free with Museum admission, such as Art Mix.)
How many people receive free general admission with my membership?
The number of people admitted depends on your level of membership. The Individual level admits one adult. The Family level admits two adults and any children under 18. The Associate level admits three adults and any children under 18. Contributor and Benefactor levels admit four adults and any children under 18.
How long is my membership valid?
Your membership is valid for one calendar year from the end of the month in which you join. For example, if you joined January 5, 2015, your membership would expire January 31, 2016.
What are the benefits of membership at the Crocker?
In addition to supporting the arts and enjoying free Museum admission, members receive a number of discounts and exclusive perks. Click here to view a full list of benefits, including how to get free admission to more than 750 other museums across North America.

Membership Cards

Can anyone use my membership card?
No. Membership cards are not transferable; only the cardholders are entitled to use the card. The cardholders must be present in order for their guests to receive free admission.
I don't have my card(s). Can I still visit the Museum?
Yes. Simply provide your name at the Admission Desk, and a Visitor Services Representative will check you in. Please note that if you just became a member, it takes up to two weeks to process and mail your membership card(s).
I lost my card/my name is misspelled on the card. Can I get a replacement card?
Replacement cards are $10 per card and can be purchased over the phone or in person at the admission desk. Please note membership cards are not transferrable or refundable.
How can I update my information?
You can contact the Membership Office at membership@crockerartmuseum.org or (916) 808-6730. Or you can visit the Admission Desk.
Can more than one name appear on my card(s)?
Members at the Individual level may have only their name printed on their card. Members at the Family level and above may have up to two names on the cards.

Membership Dues

Is there a teacher or educator discount?
Open to all educators from pre-kindergarten through college-level institutions, our Educator membership provides benefits designed with teachers in mind.

Can I pay my dues monthly instead of annually?
