Digital Membership Cards

In an effort to better serve Parrish Members, as well as do our part to preserve the environment, the Museum has launched digital Membership cards for every Member included on the Membership.

Your new digital Membership cards will be emailed to you when you join or renew and can be downloaded, printed, or saved to your mobile device using Apple Wallet or Google Pay. Just like physical cards, digital Membership cards enable you to access your benefits on and offsite and online, including free or discounted admission, and discounts in the Shop and Café. Digital Membership cards at the Associate level and above will display reciprocal access to more than 1,000 institutions.

If you would still like to receive a physical Membership card, there will be a $2.50 charge for all but our Giving Circles Members. Please make this request directly to
