one year of unlimited admission
The Grand Rapids Children's Museum is a proud member of The Association of Children's Museums (ACM) Reciprocal Network. The ACM Reciprocal Network is a network of ACM member museums that offer discounted admission based on their membership level. Currently, over 200 museums participate in the network and provide 50% off general admission for up to six (6) family members from the same household, including the cardholder, who must be present.
+pay what you can
We offer discounted memberships that are available to families that qualify for EBT and/or WIC. These memberships are available for a minimum of $20, but we ask that families give as much as they are able. Families able to pay a little more will allow us to continue our mission of providing access to play for all children in our community.
These memberships are available online, in-person, by phone, or by mail. Membership benefits will apply to the qualifying family and caregivers. Families may continue to renew at this level as long as they continue to qualify under these programs. We do not require documentation to register as a member.
If you have questions about a different qualifying program, please reach out to our Membership Manager, Megan Geiken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
