Do members receive free admission to museum events?
Buffalo AKG members receive free or discounted admission to events and programs. All members-only events are free for members. Members receive discounted admission to classes, workshops, talks, musical performances, and many special events.
Does my membership allow me to bring guests to the museum?
One-time use admission guest passes are a benefit that all AKG members receive. Quantities of passes vary and increase by membership level.
Guest passes are valid for admission during regular operating hours only. They are not transferrable, and guests must be accompanied at the time of visit to redeem. Multiple passes may be redeemed on one visit.
Your guest pass(es) are automatically loaded onto the primary member’s account. They are deducted as they are redeemed and will reset upon your next membership renewal.
Provide the primary member’s name when checking in for your visit and request to use your available guest pass(es).
Does my membership get me into other museums?
