Membership, a gift that keeps giving all year long

Not sure what to get for that person who “has everything and needs nothing” on your gift list.  Well, look no further!  May we suggest giving the gift of an Abbe Museum membership?  There are many levels to choose from, and the most popular one is the Household Membership for $65.   Benefits include: unlimited free admission for two to both museums, subscription to the Abbe Museum eNews and calendar of events, invitations to museum events, and 10% discount on all purchases in the Museum shops.  

Now that the Abbe is a Smithsonian Affiliate, we are able to offer a membership to the Smithsonian through the Abbe.  For $30 more, you can add a Smithsonian membership to make it a double membership gift.  These benefits include:  personalized membership cards identifying you as a Smithsonian Affiliate member, a one year subscription to Smithsonian or Air & Space Magazine, 10% discount off all purchases from the Smithsonian Catalog and Smithsonian Store, discounts on shopping and dining at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, members-only travel opportunities and more!

Call 288-3519 to order your gift membership and we will mail you a gift-wrapped membership package.  Ask for Johannah or Hannah or email or  You are also welcome to come by the museum store in person.

Winter hours for the museum and shop are 10:00am to 4:00pm Thursday through Sunday.  The museum is closed for the month of January, as we will be installing the newest exhibit, Twisted Path III, Questions of Balance and will reopen on February 6 with the new exhibit.
