President’s Circle


The President’s Circle is an essential source of funding for HMNS. Gifts to the Annual Fund of $2,000 and above qualify you to this distinguished group of dedicated donors. President’s Circle donors will receive invitations to private exhibition previews throughout the year along with your Family Flex membership benefits. In 2018 our President’s Circle donors enjoyed preview receptions for our newest in-house exhibition, Death by Natural Causes, the touring exhibits, Message in a Bottle, and Knights. A gift today ensures your invitation to future gatherings.

Your gift to the President’s Circle will support:

  • Youth education programing and outreach
  • Free and low-cost field trips for school groups
  • Free admission hours to permanent exhibits on Thursdays
  • Special exhibits with relevant and compelling scientific and cultural content
