Membership Benefits

Visits to The Nat are a way to stay connected to the natural world through our exhibitions, our 3D films, and our invitation-only events.

Members get free general admission throughout the year, guest passes, invitations to exhibition previews and member-exclusive events, and discounts on shopping, dining, after-hours programs and more.
