Members Frequently Asked Questions
How do I purchase a membership?
How many membership cards will I receive?
All membership levels receive two permanent membership cards, one with the primary member’s name and the second personalized with another person’s name or “Guest of (primary member’s name).” If the second card is personalized, then only that specified person can use the card. If the second card is a “Guest of” card, then a different person can use it for each visit. Membership cards are non-transferable.
Do children/grandchildren of members receive youth membership cards?
Youth cards are available for all membership levels except the Navigator Solo membership. Youth cards (for ages 5-17) may be obtained at the Membership Desk or Admission Desk. General admission is free for children 4 and under.
I am a member and my guest wants to visit the Museum but I am unable attend. Can my guest still get in by themselves if they use my guest membership card or one-time-use guest pass?
Yes; they will receive free admission if they bring an active membership guest card or one-time-use guest pass.
How can I get replacement membership cards?
If you have a current membership and have lost your card, replacements can be obtained by filling out the replacement card request form or by calling the Membership department at 206-764-5711.
How does the one-time-use guest pass work?
The back of the pass needs to be filled out by the visitor in order to be redeemed for free admission. There is no expiration date for the guest pass.
Will lost/stolen one-time-use guest passes be replaced?
We are unable to replace guest passes. Please keep your guest passes in a safe place.
Why do I have to show a photo I.D. when I use my membership card to enter The Museum of Flight?
As a security measure and to prevent the use of lost or stolen membership cards, we require members to present photo I.D. upon entering the Museum.
If I forget to bring my membership card, can I still visit the Museum for free?
Yes; just present your photo I.D. the Membership Desk or Admissions Desk so that they can verify your membership in our database.
When will I receive my membership cards?
After signing up for membership, you’ll receive your cards by mail in approximately two weeks. Processing may take up to four weeks during busy seasons. Please feel free to contact the Membership department at 206-764-5711 to check your status.
Can I use my Museum of Flight membership at other museums?
Yes; please visit the Partner Museums section of our website for more information.
I am a Boeing employee or retiree. Do I receive a special discount on my membership?
Yes; in recognition of the generous support of The Boeing Company, the Museum offers discounted memberships to those who have retired from or are currently employed with Boeing. Please call the Membership department at 206-764-5711 for more information.
Is membership tax-deductible?
The Museum of Flight is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Museum Memberships purchased in 2012 are fully tax deductible. Please consult your tax preparer for details.
Does my company match my donations to The Museum of Flight?
