Why become a member?

Becoming a member of the Ag Museum or renewing your current membership is one of the most important ways you can show your recurring support. Memberships provide much needed funds to continue and improve the many programs the museum provides. From the family programs the museum organizes to the annual Halloween, Christmas, and Heritage Festival events put on in collaboration with the Palmetto Historical Park, your support helps make all of that possible!

What does a membership include? 


All Memberships Include: “Here’s the DIRT” museum e-newsletter; “Bringing You The Buzz” membership magazine; invitations to exhibition receptions & members only events; discount registration on workshops and classes.

Some membership levels include NARM benefits. The North American Reciprocal Museum Association is one of the largest reciprocal membership programs in the world! NARM has over 1,100 arts, cultural, and historical institutions along with botanical gardens, children’s museums, science and technology centers and more that offer their individual NARM qualified members reciprocal benefits. Present your valid membership card to any participating NARM institution to receive:

  • Free/member admission during regular museum hours

  • Member discounts at museum shops

  • Discounts on concert/lecture tickets


Guests are not included unless they present a current membership card validated with the accepted NARM identification.  Family memberships are determined by each participating institution and it is recommended that you contact the institution you plan to visit prior to visiting to avoid any confusion.


The Manatee County Agricultural Museum now has a rolling membership, meaning that your membership will expire one year from when you join.
