  • Do SCMA members also get benefits at other museums?
  • Yes, SCMA offers two reciprocal membership programs. All Museum members receive reciprocal membership privileges through the College and University Art Museums Reciprocal Program. SCMA Members at the “leader level” of membership or above also receive reciprocal membership privileges at more than thirty additional museums nationwide as part of the Art Museum Reciprocal Network. Reciprocal privileges entitle SCMA Members to free admission to our reciprocal museums’ permanent collections and discounts in their museum stores. Ticketed exhibitions and special events are not included. Check with individual member museums for exact privileges.
