Corporate Membership

Become a corporate member of the Museum of the City of New York and enjoy exclusive benefits!

In addition to providing essential support for the Museum, corporate members receive a host of special benefits and opportunities, including free admission for employees, curator-led exhibition tours, invitations to exclusive events, volunteer opportunities, and event rental privileges. The Museum can tailor additional benefits to meet your company’s marketing and branding objectives.

Corporate members also receive special access to New York at Its Core, a new, multi-media exhibition on New York City’s sweeping 400-year history of growth and transformation. Five years in the making, the exhibition tells the compelling story of New York’s rise from a striving Dutch village to today’s “Capital of the World.”

The Museum also offers membership options for local businesses in East and Central Harlem.  For more information on the Museum’s Local Business Membership levels, click here
