Visitors center membership information

Right now, the Visitors Center needs the support of our members. Membership dollars are used by our organization to advance the incredible architectural heritage of Columbus, Indiana, and to educate people of all ages about the value of good design. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on the tourism industry. Our organization continues to support our lodging, hospitality, and retail partners who are bearing the brunt of this economic downturn, but this crisis has greatly diminished our ability to generate the revenue we need to pursue our mission. We will not be able to navigate these uncharted waters alone.

Please consider renewing your membership with the Visitors Center for 2020. Now more than ever, we must work together to share our story. When travel restrictions are lifted, the Visitors Center will be ready to welcome visitors back to our community and will work diligently to connect them with our local hotels, restaurants, and small businesses.  

The Visitors Center is a 501c3 organization. Membership gifts are tax-deductible. You can renew your Visitors Center membership securely via PayPal, see link below. If you would prefer to pay by check, please make your check payable to the Columbus Area Visitors Center, 506 Fifth Street, Columbus, IN 47201, and write “Membership” in the memo line.  

Membership is $50, additional donation is welcome!

Member benefits include:

  • 15% discount on Gift Shop purchases
