Free Memberships for Educators


At HMNS, we love education and educators. That’s why we started our annual Buy One, Give One campaign. Each September, for every Family level membership or above purchased, we give away one dual level membership to an educator in our community. It’s our way of giving back to those who spend the entire year giving to others.

A membership to the museum means educators have even more resources and programming they can use for their students, themselves and their families.

If you’re an educator and you’re interested in joining our waitlist to receive a free membership to HMNS, click here.

We want to hear from you!

We want to know how our membership program can continue to benefit educators, so please take a few minutes to complete this short survey about what you need from us. We’ll use your feedback to create a program that best serves the educators in our community.

Reaching As Many Educators As Possible

Last year, our community’s support of this initiative resulted in over 1,750 educators receiving a free membership. Our goal is to offer this opportunity to as broad a group of educators as possible — there are over 90,000 in the Houston area!

To serve this goal, educators who received a free membership in the prior year will not be eligible to receive another free membership in the current year promotion until all new, interested educators have been granted memberships.

However, to make continuing membership as accessible as possible to our educator community, the museum will be subsidizing renewals for these educators. Details will be shared with educators who qualify for this offer via email. For any questions, or to update your email address to ensure you receive this offer, please email educatormembers@hmns.org.
