Fund a Schoolchild's Visit

Schoolchildren are often prevented from visiting the museum due to a lack of funding for school bus transportation. Your donation to the Children's Access Program supports school bus transportation and or admission to the museum, allowing more children to know their history and take pride in their heritage. Click here to donate to fund a school bus to enable more schoolchildren to visit the museum.


Various opportunities exist to support the museum’s programs, events and exhibitions. Sponsors receive special recognition on-site, as well as on related marketing and promotional materials.
