TMC Volunteer Perk: Explore New York Museums For Free

If you’re an active TMC Volunteer, and you’re planning a trip to New York City, you’ll want to know that your Textile Museum of Canada member card gets you free admission to a number of museums in the Big Apple.


Susan Singh is captivated by the display of Indian gold jewelry at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as this dancing Shiva at the Rubin Museum of Art.


On a trip to New York City this winter, TMC Volunteer Association chair, Susan Singh, discovered that her Textile Museum membership card (featuring the special stamp identifying her as a volunteer) provides free admission for two to a wide range of museums including:

The Brooklyn Museum
Museum of the City of New York
The Frick Collection
Metropolitan Museum of Art
El Museo del Barrio
Museum of Modern Art
