Patrons Circle Exclusive

For the first time, the Museum is pleased to invite Patrons Circle members at, and above, the Discoverer ($25,000) level to experience the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from our front steps—at the starting point of the Parade! Enjoy breakfast in the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda and view the Parade from your exclusive “front-row seats” with your party of up to 15 people.

This invitation-only celebration is our thanks to you for upgrading your membership. Your amplified support will sustain, strengthen, and advance our vital efforts to expand human knowledge and foster science literacy.

If you have questions or would like to like to complete your upgrade over the phone, call the Patrons Circle office at 212-769-5153. Our invite-only guest list for this event must be confirmed by Tuesday, November 14. 

Following is a full list of the benefits you will enjoy at the Discoverer level.




Under federal tax rules, grants by donor advised funds (DAFs) and private foundations cannot be used for memberships in which the donor-advisors or disqualified persons receive more than an incidental benefit. Please contact your tax advisor or your DAF’s supporting organization for more information, including the possibility of waiving return benefits or using an alternate funding source to pay for the full membership.
