Support Early Childhood Education

Jane Kloecker, the Museum’s esteemed Founding Director of the Science and Nature Program (SNP) and dear friend to us all, is retiring. Through her visionary work here at the American Museum of Natural History, Jane has given thousands of children a profound gift that will last a lifetime – a deeper connection to the natural world that surrounds and sustains them, and a welcoming initiation into the world of science. Please join us in making your gift, in Jane’s honor, ensuring the continuation and growth of the Museum’s Early Childhood Education programs to which she has dedicated herself so fully and brilliantly for the past eighteen years.

Support Free School Visits

Allow a class of schoolchildren to encounter the Museum’s iconic halls! Over a third of NYC public school children pass through our halls every year to learn about science and nature. Whether learning about T. rex or the latest discoveries in astrophysics, students will experience the excitement of science. Any size contribution makes a difference, but a gift of $350 will give a class of New York City school students a free visit to the Museum.
