Instead of being prompted to manually renew your membership when it expires, we will use the credit card on file to automatically renew your membership at the same membership level, unless you provide us with a cancellation notice. Members will be reminded 7 days prior to the auto-renewal via email.

What happened to the Grandparent membership level?

While we are grateful for the Grandparent membership to be offered at the Garden for over 20 years, Huntsville Botanical Garden removed this level in January 2024 in order to simplify our membership program. Members that have previously purchased the Grandparent membership are welcome to renew at the Family membership level, which offers the same benefits as the Grandparent level.

What is the Museums For All membership?

Museums For All is an initiative of the Institute of Museum and Library Services to provide discounted admission for EBT cardholders. Beginning January 2024, Huntsville Botanical Garden extended this to its membership program. Individuals and families receiving food assistance will receive the same benefits as a Family membership at a reduced rate by presenting their EBT card and photo ID.

The following public assistance programs are eligible for the Museums For All membership level:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)
  • Seniors Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)
  • Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC or eWIC)
  • Summer EBT (S-EBT)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

Because EBT card verification is required for this level, Museums For All memberships are not eligible to be gifted. Reduced pricing for this membership level does not apply to special events and exhibits.

Prospective members may direct questions to the Manager of Membership Programs at or 256-830-4447 ext. 255.

I have visitors coming. Is their admission included on my family membership?

A family membership includes up to two named adults and their children under the age of 18. Any additional guests would need to purchase admission separately.
