OI Memberships

Personal Memberships

Membership is the cornerstone on which Oglebay Institute is built. The organization is proud to boast a strong membership base of more than 1,100 individuals, families and businesses.  This support not only serves as the community’s tangible expression of support, but it also underwrites free community events and school programs, enables qualified staff to be retained, and affords the maintenance of the organization’s public facilities.

Please find below detailed descriptions of OI’s numerous membership levels.  Each is complete with a wealth of valuable benefits such as discounts and guest passes.

There are several convenient ways to purchase an OI membership: you may use the “My Account” feature on this website; visit any OI facility; or call the OI Administrative Office at 304-242-4200.
