UMMA Membership

We’re happy to announce that the benefits of being a member at UMMA are getting even better. Now, if you join or renew your membership at the $75 level, you will receive reciprocal membership with twelve other Michigan museums, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Cranbrook Art Museum, Grand Rapids Art Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. We have streamlined our slate of other benefits to make it easier for you to take advantage of all the opportunities membership offers.
