Gift Membership

*After being directed to the checkout page, please select the "This membership is a gift" box located in the Registration portion at the bottom of the webpage. 

How a Gift Membership Works

If you purchase your gift membership online, the membership will be activated on the day of your purchase. Two membership cards will be issued and you can decide during the online transaction whether they’re mailed to you to give or directly to the recipient. 

If you prefer the gift membership not be activated on the date of your purchase, please call (415) 339-3954 or (415) 339-3931 and we can prepare a gift certificate that can be mailed either to you or directly to the recipient. The gift certificate essentially serves as a voucher that the recipient will redeem when they want at the Museum’s front desk.  

If you  were unable to reach us by phone and have questions about membership or would like to purchase a gift membership, please email membershipbadmorg and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
