Support Us » Membership

Becoming a member of the Museum is not only a great way to show your support for historic preservation, it is also a great deal for you (and your family)! You’ll be joining about 1,000 other individuals from as near as down the block to as far as Australia who constitute our museum membership.

All levels of personal membership entitle you to free admission to all public areas of the museum, our printed newsletter, email newsletters, access to our members-only online area, special discounts and invitation to special members-only events.

Membership is also your gateway to volunteering at the museum. Over 100 people volunteer at the museum each year.

Membership is available to all persons without discrimination or prejudice. There are age restrictions in some membership categories.
