Reciprocal Membership Benefits

The Des Moines Art Center is pleased to provide reciprocal membership benefits through NARM and ROAM at over 1,000 premier arts and cultural museums across the United States to our members at the Ambassador ($140) level and higher.

Simply show your Art Center membership card, validated with a sticker on the back, at participating museums and receive free general admission and member discounts for gift shops, cafes, parking, special events, and more (some limitations apply*).

*Please note:

Individual museums may define family/household benefits differently from the Des Moines Art Center and restrict some reciprocal privileges. We recommend that you visit the NARM website, ROAM website, or contact participating museums before your visit.

Museums denoted as MOD-CO (Modern and Contemporary Art Reciprocal Membership Program) provide free admission and reciprocal membership benefits to Art Center members at the Influencer ($250) and above only. Learn more about MOD-CO.
