Are there special exhibit viewing opportunities for members? How do I receive notifications? 
Yes! We provide Wing members with special opportunities to experience our exhibitions before they open to the public at our Member-Only Preview. Wing members and their guests have exclusive access to our exhibitions for the Special Exhibition Gallery on the first floor and the George Tsutakawa Contemporary Art Gallery on the second. Guests of members are invited (primary member must be present). 

You are notified with email invitations to RSVP before the exhibit opening. You may also find information and dates for exhibit openings in our quarterly calendar mailed to your address on file.

How do I bring in guests with my membership?
Guest privileges are applicable to General Admission only and depend on your membership level. All members receive 50% off general admission for any guests that are not included in their membership. For all guest discounts, the guests must be accompanied by the primary member. 

  • Individual members receive only one complimentary admission ticket for themselves. All guests accompanying them receive 50% off general admission. 
  • Friends members receive two complimentary admission tickets. All further guests accompanying them receive 50% off general admission. 
  • Family, Patron, and Benefactor members receive complimentary admission tickets for two adults and four children under 18 years old. All further guests accompanying them receive 50% off general admission. 

How do "Guest of" membership cards work? 
Friends, Family, Patron, and Benefactor memberships have the option of having one named member card and a flexible "Guest of" card allowing the primary member to bring a different person with them when they visit.

I'm a reciprocal museum member. Do I get free admission?
The Wing Luke Museum participates in the North American Reciprocal MuseumAssociation (NARM) and has an affiliate program with the National Parks Service. Tickets for reciprocal members are only available onsite and we are unable to reserve them for you in advance. 

  • If you are a NARM member, your benefits include one complimentary General Admission ticket per active participating membership card with the appropriate NARM stickers. Please present your active participating membership card with the appropriate NARM stickers to the Museum Services desk to secure your ticket. Since you are a member of a different museum, we do not have access to your membership account and are unable to verify your membership status. We will be unable to provide you with free admission if you do not have this information at time of purchase.
  • If you are a member with the National Parks Service (NPS), we offer a $2 discount to visit the museum. We do not offer complimentary admission at this time, as we are an affiliate with the National Parks. However, we do have a passport stamp available for you to add to your collection at our Marketplace gift shop. 

Can someone else use my membership card?
Membership benefits are nontransferable. If you have guests that would like to visit the museum and use your membership benefits, you (the primary member) must be present for the visit and at time of purchase.
