Fellows Benefits

The Fellows provide crucial operating support, allowing the Morgan to organize superb exhibitions, offer educational programs for audiences of all ages, and care for and make accessible one of the world's foremost collections of manuscripts, rare books, and art. Throughout the year, special programs, receptions, and other opportunities allow the Fellows to become better acquainted with one another, and with the Morgan. This distinguished group of patrons, collectors, and connoisseurs is integral to sustaining the Morgan as a museum and center for scholarly research.

All Fellows receive a year of exclusive benefits, including:

  • Free admission
  • The Morgan Calendar of Events, including advance notice of and discounts on lectures, concerts, and other public programs
  • Discounts at the Morgan Shop
  • Free admission for two adult guests and two children under the age of eighteen when accompanied by Fellow(s)
  • Advance notice of and free admission to Family Days and other family programs
  • One private docent-led tour for up to six people, by appointment
  • Invitations to events for the Association of Fellows
