Smithsonian Affiliate Membership Program

A Smithsonian Affiliate Membership can be added on as part of a general membership to the Museum of Arts & Sciences for $20.00. Family Plus, Friend of MOAS, and Renaissance Society members all receive a complimentary Smithsonian Affiliate Membership. Essentially, having a Smithsonian Affiliate Membership in addition to your MOAS membership is like having two memberships in one. Affiliate members receive all of the benefits of the Museum of Arts & Sciences, PLUS a national membership from the Smithsonian.
