One membership, three museums, endless connections!

Invest in your community — become an MVC member or renew your membership today!

Become a member of the Museum of Ventura County and discover the rich art, culture, and history of this vibrant region at our three campuses.

Not only is your membership an investment in yourself, with perks at every level, it’s a pledge to celebrate and uplift the vibrant communities we serve. What’s more, every membership fee is 100% tax deductible*, amplifying the impact of your generosity and providing you a year-end deduction.

What is NARM? 

At the Adventurer level (previously Associate) and above, your MVC membership grants you free admission to over 1,300 additional museums! The North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association is an extensive network of hundreds of cultural institutions across the continent that accept your MVC membership card for entry. Beginning at a price of just $12.50 a month, this exciting membership perk affords you unprecedented access to a world of discovery and culture.

The best way to make a sustaining impact on the Museum of Ventura County is to pay your membership dues monthly! Monthly payment options start at just $6.25 per month.

By becoming a member, you fuel MVC’s educational initiatives, outreach efforts, dynamic art and history exhibits, Research Library, and the preservation of the region’s rich culture. As admission fees are reinstated at our Downtown Ventura campus on February 1, 2024, MVC members will continue to enjoy free admission year-round.

Our membership program might look different than the last time you visited this page! As of December 1, 2023, we have updated our membership program with new titles, updated pricing, additional levels, and expanded benefits. We are excited to welcome you to this new chapter at the Museum!

* What does tax deductible mean? MVC is a non-profit organization and your membership fee is a charitable contribution, meaning that every cent of it can be traced towards furthering MVC’s mission. This can be deducted from your year-end income taxes, saving you money while supporting us in the process.
