*All memberships to i.d.e.a. Museum are nontransferable and nonrefundable.  In the event of a temporary museum closure, all memberships will be paused and reactivated at the time of reopening.  On the rare occasion a refund is approved, refunds are determined based on length of time left on membership and remaining monetary value. The refund amount will be calculated by the original purchase price minus the face value of any admissions ($9 each admission) used during the membership period. Most memberships pay for themselves by the second visit, making all subsequent unlimited visits free to the member family. Once the value of the membership is reached through admissions, there is no monetary value remaining and a refund or exchange cannot be processed.
