The Mariners’ Society

Help us to Chart a Course for the Future

The Mariners’ Society consists of an extraordinary group of supporters who believe in the Museum’s mission to connect people to the world’s waters and to one another. Your annual commitment of $1,000 or more will enable The Mariners’ Museum and Park to achieve great things, including:

  • The preservation and conservation of artworks, library and archival materials, and artifacts, including those from The USS Monitor.
  • The creation of exceptional exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and other programs featuring national and international presenters.
  • The expansion of education and outreach efforts serving school children in kindergarten through grade 12, providing hands-on learning opportunities, and 21st-century work skills, so that children gain knowledge about science, technology, language arts, and regional, national, and global history.
  • The stewardship of 550 acres of The Mariners’ Park and the five-mile Noland Trail.
  • The promotion and increased understanding of our seafaring past and the dynamic interconnectivity of our waterways, diverse peoples, and technological advancements essential to building a sustainable future.
