Membership

New members only. Current members will receive three extra months of membership when they renew onsite at the NOMA admissions desk.

NOMA members inspire the love of art in every visitor who walks into the Great Hall or through the gates of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. 

In addition to enjoying benefits like special members’ previews of exhibitions and free wellness classes surrounded by sculptures, our members enable schoolchildren to discover the Old Masters, community members to engage with world-class art and local artists, and NOMA’s curators to present innovative and provocative exhibitions year after year.

For more information, please contact 504.658.4130 or membership@noma.org.
