Memberships are currently available onsite at the Museum’s front desk. During Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors (through May 14, 2017), members and their guests bypass the general admission line for quicker entry to this very popular exhibition. 

The LIMITED EDITION KUSAMA CIRCLE ($50) membership is currently at capacity, with a limited number available for the following special groups: students, military, and seniors ages 65 and older with valid ID.

We thank members for the vital support that lets the Hirshhorn present Infinity Mirrors free to the public. While federal funding provides operating costs, private donations make possible the Museum’s renowned exhibitions and innovative public programs. We would be delighted to include you among our members this coming season, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hirshhorn!
