Which Membership is right for you?

Whether you’re a bookworm, researcher, history buff or a veteran yourself, membership with the PMML has something to offer. All membership levels get free admission to the Museum & Library during normal business hours, as well as borrowing privileges for the over-60,000 title collection. Members also get unlimited access to the entire catalog of original TV series, available online for streaming.

Higher membership levels get additional benefits, including discounts on merchandise and facility rentals, free admission to programs and guest passes for friends and family. The Founder’s Club, as the highest level, comes with even more exclusive benefits.

In addition, all PMML membership levels get reciprocal admission with The National WWII Museum in New Orleans, LA. Each member and one guest will get access to all of the WWII Museum’s regular galleries and pavilions, including their signature Campaigns of Courage Pavilion, John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion, and the original Louisiana Memorial Pavilion.

PMML members can take advantage of this benefit by simply showing their PMML membership card at the admissions counter of the WWII Museum. Special features and exhibitions, such as Beyond All Boundaries and Final Mission: USS Tang Submarine Experience, are not included with reciprocal admission.
