art and you

Membership fuels the Rubin Museum's mission to advance the appreciation and understanding of Himalayan art and helps to shape our future. As a thank you for your critical support, members receive free admission to all our galleries, free weekly meditation sessions, exclusive content, program and shop discounts, and more!

The Rubin is becoming a global museum and closing the 17th Street building on October 6, 2024. In the future, the Rubin will offer traveling exhibitions, participatory experiences, educational and research initiatives, grants for artists and creatives, digital programs, and so much more. Our members are central to our vision for the future and will receive exciting new benefits to be announced in the coming months.

Please note that all current membership benefits will be available through October 6, 2024. All memberships active at the time of building closure will automatically be enrolled into the new membership program at no extra cost.
