Gift of Membership

A gift that keeps giving all year long is a Museum Membership! Memberships are perfect for anyone who enjoys visiting the Museum, attending special programs and events, or shopping and dining at the Museum. Members receive discounted or free admission to dozens of programs and events each year, plus discounts in the Museum Shop and Museum Cafe. This generous gift from you also gives back because Memberships help provide the financial foundation for the Museum and Park. With your Membership gift, we are able to help audiences discover their connection to the sea through the exploration of maritime art, culture, science and history.

Museum Quality Reproduction Prints

Do you have a loved one who could use some bold home decor? Art reproductions are the perfect gift! Instead of choosing a piece of art created to appeal to a mass market, choose from a self-selected group of work that personally appeals to you, and your giftee. We have numerous options to choose from such as oil paintings, engravings, watercolors, photography, and wartime propaganda and travel posters. Browse through our collection on today and find that must-have piece!
