We believe that educators are both leaders in their communities and vital partners of the museum. In that spirit, MIM is pleased to announce our Educator Appreciation Month in July. During the entire month of July, prekindergarten through 12th grade educators, school and district administrators, principals, registered student teachers, and homeschool educators will receive free general museum admission upon presentation of a school ID, fingerprint clearance card, or affidavit of intent.

For the month of July, teachers will receive a 10% discount on their entire purchase (excluding alcohol) at MIM’s Café Allegro and the coffee shop as well as at the Museum Store on most non-sale merchandise (some exceptions apply). This offer does not apply to previously purchased items. Teachers are asked to present school ID at the time of purchase. The Museum Store will also offer teachers complimentary catalogs from MIM’s past special exhibitions while supplies last.



Who can come to MIM for free during Educator Appreciation Month?

Current prekindergarten through 12th grade educators, school and district administrators, registered student teachers, teacher’s aides, and homeschool educators will be granted complimentary admission with a school- or district-issued ID, a fingerprint clearance card, or, for homeschool educators, an affidavit of intent.

Why doesn’t Educator Appreciation Month include higher-education college professors and substitute or retired teachers?

Educator Appreciation Month and the educational materials associated with it are designed to give current educators, specifically in the prekindergarten through 12th grade levels, a chance to preview MIM and plan their upcoming class visit to the museum

Why doesn’t Educator Appreciation Month include piano teachers or other types of private music teachers?

Educator Appreciation Month focuses on prekindergarten through 12th grade classroom educators so they can learn about MIM and how they can use the museum as a resource for arts education in their classroom.

Can my child, spouse, or other family members accompany me on my visit to MIM during Educator Appreciation Month?

Our generous sponsors provide museum admission for teachers only. Additional family members and friends may purchase museum admission separately. MIM welcomes guests of all ages!  Click here for pricing information.
