The Museum is currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but we are working hard behind the scenes on exhibitions and programs that will be offered when we reopen.

We are currently able to process new, renewal and gift memberships orders online only; membership cards will be mailed out as soon as the offices reopen, and all payments sent in by mail will be processed then as well.

For current members, please note your memberships will be extended for the duration of the Museum's closure.

Thank you again for your support of the Norton Simon Museum.

Membership Card and Guest Policy

All memberships include two personalized membership cards. If only one named cardholder is visiting the Museum or attending an event without the other, he or she is welcome to bring a guest. Additional guests pay general admission, or are permitted at the Supporting level and above.
