In this article we investigate which socialization features and individual aspects determine the membership of a cultural organization (i.e., band, choir or drama club) in the Netherlands. To test our hypotheses we employ the Family Survey Dutch Population 2000 that holds detailed information on cultural memberships. Event history analysis shows that parental social and religious participation during childhood, a person’s educational level, and a culturally active partner increase the odds of joining a cultural organization. On the other hand, young children in the respondent’s household prevent joining a band, choir or drama club. Resigning a cultural membership is positively affected by moving to another town whereas a culturally active partner further stimulates to continue a cultural subscription. Surprisingly, increasing time restrictions have no impact on the odds to resign a membership of a band, choir or drama club.
