Get More From Your Museum

Next week, on Tuesday 3 November 2020, Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum will launch an exciting three-tier Museum Membership benefits programme, as well as a relaunch of the free MyMuseum card.

Free general admission for Aucklanders
Every Auckland resident is entitled to free general admission to their Museum.

By signing up to MyMuseum, the card-based programme removes the need to show proof of address at every visit.

From November, the old teal card is being replaced to one that’s personalised with each customer’s name, membership number and a barcode for easy scanning on arrival. A new sign-up process has been put in place to ensure fast, easy, free access to Auckland Museum.

For those who want more from their Museum
An exciting new Museum Membership programme gives visitors the opportunity to support their Museum. Members will be the first to see new exhibitions , have the opportunity purchase discounted tickets to events, as well as exclusive opportunities to meet the Auckland Museum team and see special guest speakers. Museum Membership also provides first access to see and enjoy every paid exhibition for free, and members can return again for free as many times as they like.
