Members' Night is an annual family-friendly open house for Academy members only. This is your exclusive opportunity to meet our staff, explore our collections and experience the breadth and depth of work that takes place at the Academy. Chat with our experts, participate in unique activities and enjoy the museum with people who love the natural world as much as you do!

For your comfort and safety, this year we’re asking members to indicate an arrival timeslot while registering for Members’ Night. This will help us monitor capacity and ensure we maintain a consistent flow throughout the evening. RSVP now to secure your preferred arrival time. All of the activities will run continuously through the entire event, from 3–9 p.m.

Not a member? Join now to receive your invitation to Members' Night. Academy members receive an entire year of free general admission, access to members-only hours, events and activities, discounts on programming, parking, Academy Shop purchases and more. But membership is more than visitation benefits — your dues make a tangible impact on our community and planet.
