The student membership at the Seattle Art museum has certainly been worth it. Sure, they sent me a lot of advertising, and even called me a couple times for a donation, but this museum is really awesome. It's not a New York museum, but they still have a lot of great exibits. Go to each new exibit and your membeership will pay for itself. The Andy Warhol section is interesting, as is a lot of the local art they display there. You can get into the Asian art museum as well, where there are a few beautiful exibits.
