The Johnstown Children’s Museum has been closed since March, but is opening to MEMBERS ONLY Aug. 13-15 and Aug. 20-22 — please see our latest blog post with details. A public opening is scheduled for the last week of August. Stay tuned for updates!

New JAHA membership levels now available!

New JAHA membership levels now available!

You asked and we heard you! JAHA is happy to announce three new annual membership levels to accommodate students, large families, and extended families. As of January 1, 2020, JAHA is offering:

  • A Student membership for high school and college students, ages 16 to 25, with a valid student ID, for only $25!
  • Large Family and Extended Family level memberships to accommodate families with more than four children, and extended family memberships so the grandparents can come, too! Our regular Family membership includes personalized cards for up to two adults and admission for up to four children, ages 3-17, for $100. The new Large Family membership also includes cards for two named adults, but now allows for up to six children, ages 3-17, to visit our museums. An Extended Family membership provides personalized cards for as many as four adults, along with admission for four children. Now grandma and grandpa can also have cards so they can bring the grandkids, or possibly cards for two sets of parents, or add your child-care provider — you decide who is named on the membership cards. These two new membership levels are $150 each. And, now that we are part of the Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM), all three family levels receive ROAM benefits — which includes free admission to more than 300 museums in North America!

Visit our membership page for complete details on member benefits.
