Membership FAQs

Memberships are valid for one year through the end of the month. For example, a membership purchased July 4, 2019 will be valid until July 31, 2020.

In order for a membership to be considered a founding membership, it must have been purchased prior to April 30, 2018. Founding memberships must be renewed every year or their benefits will lapse. In addition to the prestige of membership in the founder class, founding memberships provide the same benefits as standard memberships.

Your membership, valid immediately upon transaction, may be purchased several ways:

  • To purchase a membership online, click here. You will receive a confirmation email that you can print and bring to the Museum for admission.
  • To purchase a membership by phone, call 215.454.2030. 
  • Or you may purchase a new membership at the Museum’s Front Desk on the day of your visit. New Members are issued a temporary member card which can be used until the permanent card arrive.

To begin enjoying your benefits before you receive your Member Welcome Packet, simply present a valid photo ID at the membership desk for verification.

Discounted parking for Museum Members is available in two covered garages near the Museum. Members should park at either garage and remember to bring their ticket with them. Obtain a discount voucher at the Museum’s Front Desk before returning to the garage and use the voucher when you pay for parking. Guests who sign up for a Museum Membership on the day of their visit are also eligible for the discounts at these garages:

  • The Bourse Garage (SPPlus Parking), located at 44 S. 4th St., is a flat $9 for up to four hours of parking before 4pm.
  • The Philadelphia Parking Authority Olde City lot, located at 125 S 2nd Street, offers a flat fee of $14.00 for up to three hours of parking.

Metered street parking is also a choice (no discount provided). Please be aware of the posted rules for street parking, as they vary by day of the week and time of day.

If you purchase your membership online, you will receive a temporary membership card as a PDF attachment to the confirmation email. If you purchase at the Museum’s Front Desk, you will receive a temporary membership card.

It typically takes one to two weeks from the date of purchase to receive your Member Welcome Packet in the mail, which will include your permanent membership card. If you mailed in your payment, the process may take longer. 

Members are always welcome to visit the Museum before they receive their welcome packet or if they do not have their membership card with them. When you arrive, stop by the Front Desk in the Museum rotunda with a valid photo ID. Our Guest Services team will provide you with everything that you need for the day.

No, your membership card is non-transferable. However, Memberships at the Dual and above levels include one-time use guest passes which can be used in your absence.  

Members may upgrade at any time. Upgrades are not prorated. Upgrades within three months of renewal will be charged at the new level rate rather than the difference. Downgrading a membership is only allowed during renewal.

Yes! Guests may apply their ticket purchase towards a membership up to a week after your visit. Please have tickets or receipt ready and call Membership at 215-454-2030. On the day of your visit, you may visit our Front Desk to convert towards a membership. Tickets may be credited based on the number of members in a category, e.g. Individual = 1; Dual = 2; Family, Ambassador, Supporter or Advocate = 2 Adults and up to 4 Youth.

Reciprocal benefits at participating museums and organizations are provided for MoAR Members at the $250 Ambassador level and above. The North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program allows you free or discounted admission into hundreds of participating museums across North America. To see a full list of reciprocal museums and other benefits, click on Maps & Lists here: https://narmassociation.org/

We do not offer membership discounts. However, active duty military, teachers (with ID), students (with ID), and seniors enjoy a $2 admission discount for general admission tickets purchased online or at the Museum.

The Museum of the American Revolution now participates in the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association program. If you are a qualifying member of a museum or organization outside a 15-mile radius that participates in NARM, please visit our Front Desk at the beginning of your visit to obtain timed admission ticket(s) by presenting your membership card, which must have the NARM logo preprinted on the card or a NARM sticker. Unfortunately, advance orders via phone or web are not accepted. You will receive free general admission during normal business hours for up to two named adults and up to four children under 18 (guests not included), member discounts for public programming, and 10% off in the Museum Shop and Café.
