Annual Fund gifts are a very important part of the Museum’s financial picture
The Annual Fund is the heart of the Museum’s fundraising efforts and provides for the basic needs of the institution. Annual Fund gifts support:
- Programs for youth that are rich in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) content;
- Free and low cost field trips for school groups;
- Free admission to the Museum’s extensive permanent collection of 2 million rare and beautiful objects on Thursdays from 2 to 5 p.m.;
- Unique special exhibits that feature major works of scientific and cultural interests which complement the Museum’s permanent exhibitions;
- And state-of-the-art Giant Screen 3D films that allow the audience to experience new environments from outer space to the deep sea.
