Smithsonian Associates Gift Certificates

Enrich Someone's Life...

...with a GIFT CERTIFICATE to the Smithsonian Associates!

It's fun to give someone a gift you know they'll enjoy. A Smithsonian Associates gift certificate is just that, because it allows the recipient to choose from an enormous variety of outstanding, high-quality programs. Recipients can also use the gift toward a membership, giving them access to member ticket prices and other valuable benefits.

Membership is a gift that lasts a whole year! To give a membership, simply make your gift certificate amount the equivalent of a membership—$45 Resident Associate membership or $60 Resident Enthusiast membership —and mention in your personal gift note that it is for a membership!
