Teacher Level Membership Information
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. Thank you again for your support of the Norton Simon Museum.
