Two Memberships in One!
The National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) is excited to offer National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA) members a complimentary one-year membership. This offer is in conjunction with the exhibition Survival of the Fittest: Envisioning Wildlife and Wilderness with the Big Four, Masterworks from the Rijksmuseum Twenthe and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, curated by Dr. Adam Duncan Harris, Grainger/Kerr Director of the Carl Rungius Catalogue Raisonné, and organized by NMWA. After the exhibition opens in Jackson Hole on May 27, 2023, NSLM will be the East-Coast host venue from September 8, 2023, to January 14, 2024. This reciprocal membership opportunity will be available through the run of the exhibition at both organizations.
Located in beautiful Middleburg, Virginia, NSLM is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and sharing the literature, art, and culture of equestrian, angling, and field sports as well as advocating for the conservation of the landscape and wildlife crucial to these sports. With our shared passion for wildlife and the outdoors, and our fine-art collections, members of NSLM and NMWA have the unique chance to experience everything the two institutions have to offer.
In addition to free Library & Museum admission for themselves and their families, NMWA members will enjoy complimentary access to NSLM’s wide variety of dynamic programs (both virtual and in-person). Further member benefits include a subscription to NSLM’s quarterly newsletter, first access to online exhibitions and NSLM’s popular blog Drawing Covert, and a 10% discount on merchandise from the Museum store or online shop.
To take advantage of this unique opportunity and become a reciprocal member of NSLM, please click here and fill out your information.
Questions about Membership
- I lost my membership card. Can I still get into the Museum at no cost?
The front desk has a membership directory that is updated weekly. They will be able to confirm your membership status. To receive a replacement card, contact the membership office at 307-732-5414 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- I renewed my membership two months late and the expiration date on my new membership card is for ten months later. Shouldn’t it be 12 months later?
Your membership is not automatically dropped on the expiration date. You are allowed two months as a “lapsed” member after your membership expiration date. During the time your membership is lapsed, you can still use all of your membership benefits.
- Why isn’t my membership fully tax-deductible?
Certain membership benefits, such as guest passes and your subscription to Call of the Wild magazine, are not tax-deductible according to IRS Code. If you would like to waive certain benefits to increase your tax deduction, simply make a note on your membership application or renewal form or contact the membership office at 307-732-5414 or email@example.com.
