Member support allows us to collect, conserve, and study the art of our time. Guggenheim members see every exhibition at every Guggenheim museum for free and enjoy half-priced guest tickets, savings at our stores and restaurants, and discounts on all museum programs.

As part of our inner circle, members receive invitations to special events including exhibition opening parties, private viewings with exclusive access to explore the museum without the crowds, and Art After Dark, an after-hours party series that features an artist- or curator-selected music playlist.

Art After Dark

Art After Dark

Centering on a special exhibition or program, and open to all, Art After Dark is a series of seasonal events at the Guggenheim Museum that members enjoy for free. Once the general public has left for the day, the museum’s landmark building fills with the sounds of guests enjoying the exhibitions and an artist- or curator-selected playlist. A cash bar serves wine and beer.
