Q: Can I cancel my membership?

A: Your membership is a year-long experience and we are optimistic that despite this closure blip you will be able to engage with the Museum in numerous ways over the course of the year. Additionally, your membership expiration date will be adjusted for free to accommodate for this time we have been closed. Also, memberships are considered all or partially tax deductible donations.

Q: Does the Museum need money during this time…OR…Can I make a donation?

A: As a nonprofit the Museum relies on the generosity of people like you to ignite a passion for nature and science in everyone. And while our doors may currently be closed, we are working behind the scenes to ensure that the important work the Museum does to engage everyone in science learning continues virtually and eventually again in person, including for example, providing free access to youth will be possible when our doors re-open. If you would like to support the Museum with a donation we would be so grateful. If you’d like to do this please visit and click the ‘donate now’ button.
