CMOM Membership Policy

1. For our children's safety, all adults visiting the Museum may be asked to show valid photo ID at the Admissions Desk - whether or not they are carrying the family Membership Card. All adult caretakers must be listed on the account, as unlisted caretakers may be asked to pay admission.

2. If a member/caregiver is not carrying the family Membership Card, he/she must name the Adult Account Holder (correctly spelling their name as necessary) and show ID matching their own name as listed on that account.

3. Memberships are non-transferable and for the exclusive use of a single household as designated on the Membership Card. All children must permanently reside within the same household. Friends, extended family members and caretakers' children are not included on your membership.

CMOM reserves the right to refuse or terminate a membership on any suspicion -proven or otherwise- that CMOM Membership Policy is being violated.
