FAQs

Our Members help to provide the financial foundation for the Museum’s four core functions:

  • Programs
  • Exhibitions
  • Research
  • Conservation

We identify funding priorities within each of these functions. You can be confident that when a need arises, your Membership dollars are directed toward the most urgent, on-the-ground efforts. Just think! Your support could fund vital equipment for our conservators to care for an at-risk object or purchase school supplies for an Educational Enrichment program.
