Gift memberships

Give yourself or someone special the gift of a Frist Art Museum membership. It’s the gift that lasts all year long!

When you purchase a gift membership, we will email you an order confirmation and a print at-home gift acknowledgment to share with your recipient. This gift acknowledgement can be printed and folded into a greeting card or shared digitally. All memberships are active immediately after purchase, and acknowledgment emails are processed and sent every two weeks.

Please note: The Frist Art Museum will not send an email notification to your recipient, allowing the giver to present their gift as they wish.

Gift of Membership recipients can always visit us for free before receiving their membership cards! All they need is a valid ID to check in at Guest Services.

While we are currently experiencing production and mailing delays, we are working to get physical cards to our members as soon as possible.
