Membership FAQ

Browse our frequently asked questions for more information about your Telfair Museums membership! If we don’t answer your question below, please contact us so we may assist you.

You have several options!

  • Visit any of our three sites and fill out a physical application.
  • Join online and click here to learn how to create your online account.
  • Call our Membership Coordinator at 912-790-8807
  • Download the membership application form and mail it with your payment to:
    • Development Office, PO Box 10081, Savannah, GA 31412

Please view our announcement and instructions here.

It’s easy! Just give your name or the primary member’s name to a front desk attendant at any of our three sites. We’ll issue your guest a 3-site ticket that lets them visit all three sites within one week. If you won’t be accompanying your guest, just make sure they know your name or the name of the primary member.

Of course! You’ll get 2 extra guest passes if your renewal payment is received on or before your expiration date.

Auto-renewal is an excellent way to continue your support and benefits without interruption. Either check the box and include your credit card number on your mailed renewal card or keep the box selected at checkout when you renew online. You will receive an email before your expiration date informing you that your card will be charged to renew your membership.

You may enroll, cancel, or update credit card information at any time by contacting membership@telfair.org or 912-790-8807.

Museum memberships are available to anyone 13 or older. Children 5 and under are free (up to 4 free children per paying adult).

Soon! Your membership is effective the second you join, so just speak to someone at the front desk and they’ll check you in. That said, within 5-7 business days you’ll get a physical membership packet that includes your membership card(s), letter of acknowledgement with tax receipt, and a Telfair car decal.

One year! For example, if you purchased a membership on July 22, 2018, it will be valid until July 31, 2019.

Good question! We give you 3 months after your membership expires to renew, and all your benefits are still active during that grace period. If you miss the grace period and renew after, then your expiration date will change to the end of the month you rejoined.

No problem! To make any changes, you’ll just need the new member’s full name, phone number, and email address. Then contact our Membership Coordinator at 917-790-8807 or membership@telfair.org and we’ll take care of the rest.

Telfair members at the $175 Adventurer level receive reciprocity to participating institutions through NARM and SERM.

Telfair members at the $500 Donor level and above receive NARM, SERM, and ROAM reciprocity.

Find participating institutions:
NARM
SERM
ROAM

How to redeem: Make sure you have your membership card either in your wallet app on your phone or printed. The gold NARM logo and silver ROAM logo displayed on the card will allow access to participating institutions. For SERM, please let the participating institution know that you are a member of Telfair Museums, and they will find us on their list. If you have downloaded your Telfair digital membership card to the wallet app on your phone, SERM is displayed on the front of the card and can be shown to the participating museum.

Telfair members should always call the participating institution before visiting to verify if there are any restrictions on admission. Visit the participating museum’s website for contact information.

Joining our member affinity groups is an excellent way to further your engagement with the museum! You must be a current Telfair member to be eligible to join. Affinity group dues are in addition to your Telfair museum membership and enable each group to fulfill its mission and enhance the group’s unique programming.

Telfair’s five member affinity groups are:

Friends of African American Arts (FAAA)
Friends of the Owens-Thomas House (FOT)
Gari Melchers Collectors’ Society (GMCS)
Telfair Contemporaries (TC)

Click here to learn more. If you are unsure of your current membership status, please contact membership@telfair.org.

Lost Your Card? There’s a $5 fee per card to replace General Level membership cards. However, you can always enjoy any of our sites without your card. Just give your name to a front desk attendant and they’ll check you in!

Environmental Impact: A big part of Telfair’s mission is enhancing the landmark buildings entrusted to us in the historic district—preserving Savannah’s past while shaping its future—and we are also committed to reducing our environmental footprint. Since September 2017, we have been issuing electronic guest passes for all general membership levels, though we continue to accept valid paper guest passes at all of our sites. Find out more in the FAQ above.

Telfair Museums reserves the right to deny membership applications, and to revoke memberships without refund for membership fees paid, for persons whose conduct Telfair Museums deems in its sole discretion to be disorderly, abusive, in violation of Telfair Museums rules or otherwise inappropriate. Membership levels, benefits, and prices are subject to change without notice.
