Join Museum Friends

Membership supports public events such as Museum Oddities.

As a Friend of the KU Natural History Museum, you can open doors to museums worldwide while supporting our public science events, exhibits, education and research.

For as little as $40 for a household membership, you receive:

  • Free family admission to the KU Natural History Museum all year
  • Free or reduced admission to more than 300 museums and science centers
  • 10 percent discount on museum summer camps
  • 10 percent discount at Natural Selections, the museum’s gift shop
  • Museum newsletter and advance notification of upcoming programs

If you join at the patron level or above, you will enjoy these benefits plus receive invitations to special events. You’ll also have the opportunity to go behind the scenes to learn about our collections of birds, insects, amphibians, archaeological materials and more.

And remember, museum memberships make great gifts.
