Museum Membership

With your museum membership, you too can play a vital role in supporting programs that preserve and share our community's rich history, art, and culture. We believe that it is the individuals in the community who have made Pasadena the distinct and exceptional city that it is today. And it is PMH supporters who are at the foundation of this museum's successes, past and future. In addition, museum membership offers significant benefits to you, your family, and friends.
