New membership categories FAQ
We have reimagined our membership program, with you in mind. You can find your former category, and the corresponding new and improved category, below.
What can I expect from my new category?
All members will continue to enjoy existing benefits. Many of these have transitioned from in-person to digital formats, so that you can connect with MoMA, wherever you are. And we’ve introduced a selection of brand-new benefits, giving you exciting new ways to connect with the art you love. Learn more about everything that your new category offers here.
Why did MoMA decide to change the membership program?
We are always thinking about how to deliver the most rewarding experiences for our members. While redesigning our membership program, we simplified the available options and honed in on our most distinctive programs—taking the guesswork out of choosing the category that’s right for you, and enhancing your benefits. We also considered how the ways in which we socialize and move through the world have changed, and worked to develop new digital offerings. That way, we can continue to bring you amazing experiences while protecting the health of our community.
How can I switch to a different category?
If you wish to upgrade, please contact the Membership team at [email protected] or (888) 999-8861. If you purchased your membership fewer than six months ago, we will assist you with upgrading for the duration of your contract. If you purchased your membership more than six months ago, we will assist you with upgrading and renewing. If you wish to downgrade, please select the new category of your choice when completing your next membership renewal.
Have film benefits changed?
