Merry Memberships

Gift a membership that keeps on giving for the year ahead
Courtney Mclaughlin

If your family has a favorite spot they love visiting over and over again, purchasing an annual family membership could be the perfect gift to ensure lots of memories and quality time together in the upcoming year.

Memberships are typically good for a year and offer access to member-only events, special exhibitions and discounts on gift store items, camp registration, restaurants and stores. Some memberships also include reduced or free admission to partner museums across the country giving you big bang for your buck, and interesting places to stop on the next family road trip.

Fees for memberships are listed below but are subject to change at any time, and may even be discounted for holiday gift-giving. Check the website for the most accurate pricing and benefits information.

FOR THE LOVE OF ART

Mint Museum | mintmuseum.org

If you love a great two-for-one deal, the Mint Museum membership has your name written all over it. Family memberships start at $100 (supporter level) and include free general and special exhibition admission to the Mint Museum Uptown and the location on Randolph Road. A membership also entitles you to discounts on programs, classes and summer camps (save 25%), and a 10% discount on admission for guests and the museum store. Hungry? Present your membership card and eat for less at Halcyon and Something Classic Cafe locations. Yum! BONUS: You also have privileges with participating Southeastern Reciprocal Museums (not including neighboring Charlotte museums).

A Cool Girl's Bedroom

WHEN DESIGNER JACY PAINTER KELLY, owner of Jacy Painter Kelly Interiors, took her family to New York City last summer, her 10-year-old daughter Lucy went crazy for the cool urban vibe of their downtown hotel room. It gave Lucy the itch to makeover her own bedroom in their Fort Mill home. She wanted more mature accents like silver wall sconces and velvet pillows, paired with punk rock elements like a graffiti-inspired bed frame and pink neon sign. Luckily her designer mom knew exactly how to tie it all together.
