Reopening, Memberships, and Art After Five Passes

We are opening the doors wide and welcoming the world back on Saturday, May 29. The fun begins at 10:00 a.m. that day and goes until 4:00 p.m. We will have live jazz music from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and food and drink vendors all day including Cherry Bomb BBQ, Johnson Estate Winery, Fowler’s Taffy, and Paul’s Rocket Stoves.

We want everyone to come and see us, so there is no charge for the outdoor celebration and we are offering $2 off admission to the museum that day. We are also offering 10% off on purchases at the museum store and 10% off on museum memberships.

This year, we are also introducing partial and full season passes for Art After Five, which will occur every Wednesday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. from June 9 to September 29.

The information below is intended to provide you with what you need to know in order to obtain the membership and/or season pass that is right for you.

We hope you will come see us on Saturday (May 29) and many other times throughout the remainder of this year.

Regular Admission – May 2021 to April 2022

Individual     $12

Senior/Military/Student     $10

Children (age 10 and under)     $6

Museum Memberships

There are six categories of museum membership at RTPI based on who is included in the membership:

Individual membership ($30) – a single individual who does not qualify for one of the three special individual categories below.

Couple membership ($50) – two individuals who live in the same household.

Family membership ($75) – parent(s) and their minor children.

Senior membership ($25) – anyone 60 years of age or older.

Military membership ($25) – an active duty member of any branch of the United States military.

Student membership ($25) – a currently enrolled full-time student.

All six categories of membership have the same benefits:

  • Free admission to the museum for the covered individual(s) every day of the year that the museum is open to the public.
  • A 10% discount on all purchases at the museum store and all purchases made through the online museum store.
  • A $3 discount on admission for each guest that you bring with you to the museum.

Museum memberships run from May 1 to the following April 30. Memberships purchased after May 15 will be prorated.

Why May 1 to April 30? Much like a sports team, a theatre company, or a philharmonic orchestra, RTPI has a season that opens and closes – exhibitions and events are planned based on that season. The opening exhibition each year is the one that begins in May.


Art After Five Season Passes

Art After Five has been expanded this year and will take place from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. every Wednesday from June 9 to September 29 – that is 17 weeks of art, live music, food & drinks, friends, and fun.

The admission price for Art After Five is $20 per person, all inclusive, which is comparable to or less than what you would pay to go out for live music, a couple of drinks, and an appetizer.

To make it easier for you to attend multiple times throughout the season, we have put together a few passes:

Quarter season pass – any 4 Art After Five events: $60 (savings of $20 = one free event)

Half season pass – any 8 Art After Five events: $100 (savings of $60 = three free events)

Full season pass – any 16 Art After Five events: $200 (savings of $120 = six free events)
