The quick and dirty approach to answering your question is to say: Ask the organization.The museum needs to be an organization able to accept tax-deductible donations. Many are. Some aren't.The membership to the museum is likely to generate a partial deduction. Often, museum members will get some small benefits - a newsletter, special admission privileges, some token gift, things like that. In those cases, you will have to ask the organization how much of the membership is tax deductible. They should be happy to tell you and provide a receipt for tax purposes.When the admission is a hard and fast fee (such as MoMA), that is not going to be deductible. You're trading money for the ability to see their public collection. That's not a donation. But when there is an optional donation - as you noted for the Met - that is normally deductible. They provide free public access to their collection and simply ask for a donation to support their work. --Peter
