When you become a member of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, you join a special group of people who care about the arts in our community. Annual membership provides wonderful benefits for you and your family and helps support everything we do to strengthen the cultural life of New London and Southeastern Connecticut.
We are excited to have recently joined NARM (National Association for Reciprocal Museums), and to pass this extraordinary membership opportunity on to LAAM members with our new NARM Level membership categories and redefined Basic Level membership categories.
NARM Level memberships are those categories of $100 or more and give those named on your membership card (max. 2 people) free admission to over 1,000 reciprocal museums across the country (including many in CT). For a full list of participating museums visit www.narmassociation.org and then navigate to maps and lists.
New Members may take out a Basic or NARM level membership; Supporter level and higher automatically qualify for NARM. If you would like to upgrade your current membership to NARM level, individual memberships may send in and additional $50 and Family members may send in $25 to start NARM visits immediately.
The Member Plus+ enhanced benefit is still available at all membership levels.
$50 Individual (Basic)
$75 Family/Household (Basic)

$150 Supporter (NARM)
