The place where young Philly comes together to support art, culture, and community at the museum.

Young Friends is a membership add-on where young Philly comes together to support art, communities, and culture throughout the city — while having a great time.

As a Young Friend member, you will explore and experience what makes the museum and Philadelphia a destination for arts and culture by participating in special events with artists, curators, museum staff, and peers.

Plus, you’ll receive discounts on ticketed Young Friend events, including our largest party of the year, Art-ish.

You can even have a hand in organizing events and programs by getting involved with one of our planning committees.

Join online by selecting your desired membership level and adding on Young Friends ($50 annually or $4.16 per month for one, $100 annually or $8.33 per month for two).
