Membership FAQs

All members will have their memberships extended by the length of our closure due to COVID-19. We know how much you value visiting your four Carnegie Museums with family and friends, so we want to make sure you receive your full year of access to the museum experiences you love. We can’t wait to welcome our staff and our members home!

How long will my membership be extended?
We can’t give you a concrete time frame yet, but we will extend memberships to account for the time of our closure. For example, if we’re closed for two months, you’ll receive two additional months to make up for that lost time.

Will I get new membership cards with the updated expiration date?
No. Unfortunately, we are unable to reprint cards. The change will be reflected on your mobile membership card only. Please note that you will not see your expiration date change until we have a re-open date.

What if I don’t have a mobile membership card?
Not to worry! You can sign up here. Your mobile membership card is a great way to have all your membership information right in the palm of your hand. You can also access it on a computer and print it out. As always, when visiting any of our four museums, you don’t need your membership card. When you check in, our admissions staff will be able to see your extension.

I recently renewed my membership, but I didn’t get anything in the mail.
Thank you for renewing your support! Once we are able to safely re-open, our priority will be getting your membership materials sent out to you. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

If you have additional questions, please email us.

What museums are included in my membership?

Your membership includes the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh:

Carnegie Museum of Art

Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Carnegie Science Center (including Highmark SportsWorks®)

The Andy Warhol Museum

What discounts do members receive?

Members receive a 10% discount in all four museum stores and cafes. In addition, members receive discounts on select classes, camps, and lectures (member pricing is listed when applicable).

What member events are offered?

Members enjoy exhibition previews, exclusive tours, lectures, and more! Please visit our member events page for a list of upcoming events.

Do members get reciprocal benefits at other museums?

Carnegie Science Center participates in the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Passport Program which offers free or discounted admission to participating science centers and museums that are beyond a 90-mile radius of Pittsburgh and your home address.*

Just show your Carnegie Museums membership card and a photo ID for admission at ASTC institutions. We recommend calling before you visit, as the list of reciprocal museums may change without notice.

Premium level members and above also receive reciprocal admission to a list of select art and natural history museums. View the list here.

What is the caregiver?

Our Family and Premium memberships allow you to add a caregiver, an adult (18 or older) who can bring your children to the museum when you aren’t present. Only one caregiver can be designated at a time. Multiple caregivers cannot be listed on your membership, even if they are spouses.

Your caregiver will receive a caregiver card to present for admission. You can change your caregiver by contacting the Membership Team.
