Digital Membership Cards
The Museum of New Mexico Foundation’s new digital membership card program put the benefits of membership—from free entry to the museums and historic sites to a 10% discount at the Museum Shops and Museum Hill Café—at your fingertips.
Digital membership cards give members a convenient way to take advantage of your favorite member benefits and will allow the Foundation to better serve members, with plans in the works to offer a green option for paperless communication and contactless entry at the museums and historic sites.
Digital membership cards will be sent to all active members via email with a link to download your new cards to Apple Wallet on iPhone or Wallet Pass on Android devices. To provide your current email address, visit museumfoundation.org/member-help.
