For nearly 150 years, the world’s brightest minds and boldest explorers have been bringing our living planet and the vast cosmos into this extraordinary building to enthrall and educate its visitors. With support from patrons like you, they have created, quite possibly, the world’s greatest classroom.  

Please make your gift to the Annual Fund today and help us continue expanding its capabilities and reach.  

You’ll be supporting an ambitious effort to engage people from all walks of life and strengthen their connection to the world that surrounds and supports them.  Your gift is an investment in a more scientifically literate society – one equipped to make scientifically informed decisions that may shape the future in profound ways.

Thank you for your support!
