El Museo del Barrio offers a range of membership opportunities, all of which include exclusive benefits and invitations to private member events. Your contribution helps to present and preserve El Museo’s permanent collection and supports exhibitions, performing art events, cultural celebrations and educational programs.


Along with access to exclusive openings, private parties, studio visits with artists, and conversations with curators and staff, Collectors Circle members get an inside look at El Museo’s exhibits, and are the first to preview the roster of artists chosen for the exhibition. It’s a great opportunity to see new work by exciting young artists before they hit the scene.


Explore Latin American and Caribbean art and culture through El Museo’s range of Family Circle membership opportunities. As a member, you and your family can participate in a range of events from gallery openings to performances. Family Circle members receive exclusive invitations to events that are geared toward children hands-on learning and family interaction. A great way to promote your child’s cultural, artistic, and intellectual development!
