ICOMOS Membership Card - Benefits

Last update: 30/08/2022
[grateful thanks to Victoria Herrero for this work]

This is a list of the Monuments/Sites/Museums around the world that grant free or reduced access* to holders of the international ICOMOS Membership Card (your card must be from the current year). It aims at providing a service to ICOMOS members who travel with their membership cards. You can click on each item to access the website and/or obtain more information, when available.

*The list is indicative and not exhaustive and is based on information supplied by our network. Free or reduced access is a concession which these establishments kindly make to ICOMOS members – the final decision whether to grant such access always rests with the Monuments/Sites/Museums themselves – and may not apply to all events they organise (e.g. temporary exhibitions). If a Monument/Site/Museum should be added or removed from the list please contact your National Committee who will relay the information to the International Secretariat after verification.

Please note that the ICOMOS card cannot be bought and is reserved to ICOMOS members.
