Philanthropic support lies at the heart of everything we do. With the generosity of our friends and benefactors, the Cleveland Museum of Art will remain among the very finest art museums in the world and a free museum committed to public access – for the benefit of all the people, forever. Members enjoy many benefits and privileges – from the bimonthly Cleveland Art members magazine to discounts throughout the museum to special exhibitions tickets.

Special exhibitions are always free to members and the children in their lives. Plus, there are special discounts on parking, food at the café, in the museum store, classes, lectures, concerts, and movies. There are so many ways to save that a membership pays for itself!
