NARM members receive free admission for 2 adults and up to 5 children (17 and under) and a Museum Store discount as long as they present a current NARM membership card validated with a gold North American Reciprocal sticker, or replica imprint of the NARM sticker. Guests are not included unless they present their own current membership card validated with the accepted NARM identification.

Yes. The Dalí does not accept NARM members from other museums within a 50-mile radius of The Dalí Museum as it could ultimately have a substantial impact on our general visitation, which we rely on to operate the Museum.
There are four local museums that have a similar local restriction for our NARM level members including: The Tampa Museum of Art, Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, Great Explorations Children’s Museum and The Ringling Museum.
Please note: Some U.S. museums restrict benefits and “Family” benefits and are defined by each participating institution. Please visit the NARM website for more information and/or contact the institution prior to your visit to avoid any confusion.

These guest passes cannot be used for admission to members-only previews and do not entitle the user to a Museum Store discount or other member benefits.

Does My Gift Qualify For Corporate Matching Gifts?

This extra support is very much appreciated. Please contact your employer to obtain and submit an appropriate matching gift form.
