As a member, do I need a timed ticket? How do I reserve one?
Yes, everyone requires a timed ticket to enter the exhibition, including CMA members. Members will have an exclusive opportunity to begin booking tickets before the general public. Free limited tickets will be determined by the level of membership.

Do I need an active membership to book tickets?
Your membership must be valid through the date of your ticket. We recommend that if your membership expires on or before September 30, 2018, members should renew before the member presale so that they have the greatest number of options when booking tickets. The last day to join or renew in order to book in this window is June 14, 2018.

I’ve booked my member tickets, but am I able to book additional tickets?
Members may purchase additional tickets during the limited weekly ticket sales throughout the run of the show. Weekly ticket sales will occur on Mondays throughout the run of the exhibition beginning Mon, 7/16 at 9:00 a.m. Due to Labor Day (Mon, 9/3), that week’s ticket sale will occur on Tues, 9/4. All tickets must be purchased or reserved online or by phone by calling 216-421-7350. There will be no on-site ticket sales. However, based on the exhibition’s popularity, tickets are expected to be reserved quickly, so we recommend booking your first-choice time slot, as you may not have another opportunity.
Do I receive guaranteed tickets with my member status?
Due to limited gallery capacity and popular demand, the exhibition will sell out quickly. Tickets are not guaranteed, although we hope to accommodate as many members as possible. Members have the exclusive opportunity to reserve tickets during our members-only presale. We advise members to act quickly.

As a member, can I secure nonmember paid tickets during the members’ booking dates?

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is not included in the reciprocal program. There will be a limited number of tickets released during the public presale and throughout the run of the exhibition. We highly recommend that you purchase tickets in advance
