Membership FAQs

How long does a Membership last?

Your membership is active until the last day of the month one year from the date you join, i.e. if you join on January 1, 2023, it will not expire until January 31, 2024. Don't worry! We will send reminders when it's time to renew your membership.


Can I apply my General Admission tickets to the cost of a membership?

Yes! Visit Guest Services in the museum lobby before you leave or call the Membership Office (479-696-9280 ext. 202) within one week of your visit to apply a portion or all of your General Admission tickets towards your membership. Please note that we can only apply the tickets from your most recent visit. 

You may apply the number of general admission tickets that matches the level of membership you would like to purchase. For example, if you purchase 5 General Admission tickets and purchase a 4 person Family level membership, you may only apply 4 of the tickets to the cost of a membership.


Do you sell gift memberships?

What a great gift!  You can purchase these online or onsite and you can designate if we are mailing the membership package to you or the recipient. 


Do I need to reserve tickets to the Amazeum before I arrive?

In order to guarantee entry, we encourage all members to reserve tickets prior to their visit online or by calling (479) 696-9280 (press 0).


What do I need to bring with me when I visit?  

Please have your digital membership card available at check-in. If your digital membership card has not been emailed to you yet, we can check you in with the name of the primary members on your membership.


When will I receive my membership card?

A link to download your digital membership card will be emailed to the primary email address we have on file within ten days of your membership purchase. If you do not receive this email within ten days, please contact us at (479) 696-9280 or

After downloading your membership card, you will have the option to share the digital card with other family members. Remember, there is no need to wait for your card to visit. 


What is a Guest Pass? 

A Guest Pass is a complimentary benefit for Premier, Wonder, Discover, and Explore level memberships that allow you to bring one guest per visit OR allows a babysitter (18 or over) to accompany your children. Guests need to check in with and be accompanied by a member.


Can my children visit without an adult?

Children need an adult, 18 or over, to come and play.


Can my children use my membership to visit with an adult that is not listed on the membership?

Children can use their membership benefits by checking in with their Member ID #. Non-family members visiting with the children will need to pay general admission. Premier and higher membership levels can use their guest pass once per visit instead of paying for extra guests.


Can I put the membership in my child's name?

Membership cardholders must be at least 18 years old.


Who can receive free admission using my membership?

Membership privileges, including free admission, are to be used by members of your family only. The Premier level includes a Guest Pass, allowing members to bring one non-family member each visit for free. Contributing Members (Wonder level and higher) can bring two non-family members each visit.

The Amazeum is a nonprofit and depends on membership and admission support to continue providing an amazing experience for our community.  We appreciate your support and understanding.

Do you have membership levels just for Grandparents?

Grandparents are welcome to join in on any level of membership. A membership can list an assortment of grandparents, parents, and children, up to the number in your membership level. 


How can I update my contact information?

Can I upgrade my membership to a higher level?

Yes! You have two options to choose from:

  1. Pay the difference between your current membership level and your desired membership level. Your upgrade will go into effect right away, but your membership’s expiration date will not change.
  2. Renew your membership early and pay full price for the higher membership level. Not only will this add another 12 months to your existing membership, but it will also give you the benefits of the higher membership level for the remainder of your current membership year.
