The ACM Reciprocal Network











The Hands On Children’s Museum is a proud member of the ACM Reciprocal Network.

The Association of Children's Museums (ACM) Reciprocal Network is a voluntary group of ACM member museums open across the U.S. and Canada that reciprocate discounted admission to one another’s members. ACM reciprocal benefits provide 50% off general admission for up to six (6) people. The named members must be present with photo ID and proof of membership.

Deluxe members who held an active HOCM membership before the pandemic closure had their expiration dates extended for no less than the number of months the museum was closed. An email will be sent in February 2021 listing your membership information, new expiration date, and will have the ACM Reciprocal Network Logo. This email should be sufficient to visit a museum participating in the ACM Reciprocal Network. HOCM will be happy to issue a printed membership card upon request for the purpose of visiting an ACM Reciprocal museum.
