At the holidays, coming up with meaningful gift ideas can be a challenge. After all, it’s the thought that truly counts.
For those art aficionados on your list, why not choose a gift that includes compelling exhibitions, creative workshops, exclusive events, and educational programs—in other words, a membership to a major cultural institution like the Harvard Art Museums.
3 WAYS A HARVARD ART MUSEUMS MEMBERSHIP IS A PERFECT GIFT
1) Members get unlimited, complimentary admission.
With exclusive perks and access to unique programs, membership gives recipients the ability to engage with art all year round. Plus, Harvard Art Museums members also have unlimited, free access to the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture—a great way to bridge the worlds of art and science.
Learn more about varying membership levels, and choose the one that’s best for the lucky beneficiaries on your list this season.
2) Members enjoy exclusive invitations to events.

In addition to a variety of public events, Harvard Art Museums members are specially invited to curator-led gallery tours, daytrips to sites of cultural significance in the New England region, and member open houses, during which they have exclusive access to the museums’ collections and special exhibitions, such as Corita Kent and the Language of Pop, on view through January 3, 2016.
The Harvard Art Museums provide access to works of art spanning millennia and originating from every corner of the world. The gift of membership adds a little something extra to those extraordinary collections on view!
3) Anyone can browse the cool merchandise, but members save when they shop.
