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 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 a 10% discount at the Museum Store on most non-sale merchandise, excluding selected concert CDs and final-sale items. Please present your school ID to the cashier at the time of purchase. This offer does not apply to previously purchased items.
