Exploration happens here. Marvel at the colorful scales of a swallowtail butterfly’s wings, count the bones of the great Barosaurus, or track earthquakes around the world in real time, right here in Manhattan.

The Museum was made for explorers and adventurers—it was made for people like YOU, with a passion for science and a love of discovery. Your support funds groundbreaking research and remarkable education programs. And it ensures that our doors stay open for explorers of every age.

Choose the option that works best for you: become a Member, renew your existing membership, or simply make a gift to support the Museum.

"The Museum has been a fixture in my life for as long as I can remember…it continues to amaze, and challenges me to think beyond myself and to see the world in broader, more interesting ways."
