GIFT MEMBERSHIPS

Gift That Keeps On Giving

Whether for friends, family, clients or employees, a gift of membership is appreciated all year round. A Museum membership is the perfect way to say, “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Holidays,” “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” “Congratulations,” “Thank You,” or “Just Because.”

One year of DuPage Children’s Museum membership adds up to a lifetime of memories and unlimited opportunities. It’s the gift that won’t get broken, no batteries needed, and it’s so easy!
