Get Involved

Become a Member

      The museum’s membership program has evolved!

Take a look at our new membership program below to see how you can get more involved.  We are excited to provide supporters, like you, engaging new benefits that have never been offered before.  Don’t worry, we’re still offering benefits that you’ve enjoyed in the past such as a complimentary newsletter and access to visiting artists and scientist.  But now you can take advantage of even more access and engaging opportunities!

      100% of your gift directly supports the museum! 

We want to keep you even better informed about the inspiring work our students and faculty pursue every day.  Your donations allow us to focus on priorities like:

  • Training the next generation of leaders in our Museum and Field Studies Program
  • Providing new exhibitions and programs at the museum, free of charge
  • Supporting our nationally-renowned faculty in their research, curation, and teaching! 

By making a donation of $35 or more, you automatically become a member and are eligible for benefits that offer more access to faculty research and a behind-the-scenes look at our collections.  You will receive complimentary parking passes and invitations to private-group tours of special collections on the CU Boulder campus.
