Kentucky Museum - Membership


Be Part of the Story

When you join the Kentucky Museum Friends, you become a part of our story. Your membership means you can enjoy the museum to its fullest, with exclusive benefits and opportunities.

Choosing to be a Friend also makes a clear statement about what you feel is important. While the Kentucky Museum receives financial support from Western Kentucky University for its maintenance and staffing needs, we must seek private-dollar support to fund exhibitions, programs, and collections care.

Dues from the Friends group help pay for our greatest needs each year, such as exhibition maintenance, collections care, and support for programs that do not receive sponsorship. Through the Friends program, we have been able to:

  • Extend our Museum Camp Scholarships Fund for an additional year. 
  • Purchase artifacts for our permanent collection.
  • Support free public events for our community.
