Our museums are dependent on the wonderful generosity of visitors and local community stakeholders. Your donation brings exciting exhibits, keeps admission fees low or free, and allows for schoolchildren to learn about our history (among many other impacts). There are many ways you can support us!

Make a Major Donation ($500+) or Include us in Planning Giving

Help us reach our vision! Make a lasting mark by making a major contribution. Like other museums, there are options of how we can recognize extremely generous contributions, like gallery name-shares or other citations. Or, think about including us in your planned estate! Many champions of local history have done so over the past several years.
