Membership Price Changes
CJM Members are the heart of the Museum and we deeply appreciate your enthusiasm, passion, and dedication to support our exhibitions and programs.
Why have membership rates changed?
Thanks to Member support, the CJM has emerged as one of the Bay Area’s most vibrant cultural institutions. In the five years since our opening, we have not raised our membership rates even as the costs involved in sustaining our programs (such as postage, operating costs, and more) continue to rise significantly each year.
We are committed to making your experience as a CJM Member the best it can be. Our price adjustments will allow the Museum to continue to offer valuable and unique benefits while also providing crucial support of CJM exhibitions, educational programs, and community outreach.
More benefits, more value. The CJM is invested in making your Member experience an exceptional value. Members continue to receive all of the high-quality benefits they currently enjoy, and we are committed to developing new opportunities to provide you with even more VIP access to artists, scholars, educators, and community. Some of the brand-new privileges we offer: Private Member Daytime Viewing Hours, Supporter Member Curator Gallery Talks, and the unique benefits associated with our new Family membership.
What are the CJM’s new membership category prices?
Our new rates went into effect April 1, 2013. Prior to that, the Museum had not raised its rates in more than five years, prior to the Museum’s grand opening in its beautiful new Daniel Libeskind-designed building in 2008.
