Join the Fun… March is Museum Membership Month! Various museums

Participating members of Sacramento Area Museums (SAM) are proud to present a variety of special membership opportunities during Museum Membership Month in March 2019.

The benefits of museum membership often extend well beyond a financial savings and include exclusive experiences only available to members. Plus, there’s something for everyone as the thriving local museum community offers memberships at virtually every museum and/or destination – from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife.
