Purchase a Gift Certificate


Some things to know about memberships:

  • We cannot post-date memberships. A membership purchased today will become active today. If you would like to purchase a gift membership to be given at a later date (like the holiday season or an upcoming birthday) we ask that you purchase a CMD gift certificate for the price of a membership. This gift certificate can be mailed to you or the recipient family.
  • Membership cards and information can only be sent to the member family. Purchasing an online membership will automatically generate and send a membership to the recipient family. We cannot divert this mailing to another person.
  • Memberships are processed within 1 to 3 days and are then sent by mail via the US Postal Service. To visit the Museum prior to the arrival of your membership card, just bring your membership confirmation and I.D.
  • Memberships are non-transferable.
  • Memberships expire one year from date of purchase.
  • The Children’s Museum of Denver reserves the right to change the terms of any membership offering at any time.
  • Please consult your tax advisor for details about membership-fee tax deductions.
