Junior Council

Bringing together science enthusiasts eager to explore the Museum's rich offerings – and sustain its vital work.

Tailored for rising Museum leaders in their 20s to early 40s, the JC's slate of programs and social events immerses members in the active science they support—and invites them to mingle in these legendary halls after the doors close. 

Your annual membership gift sustains, strengthens, and endorses our work to broaden public understanding of science and the natural world. In appreciation for your support, the Museum is pleased to extend an exclusive suite of JC membership benefits, centered around admission, events, and access. 

We hope you enjoy your experience in the JC. 
Thank you for your membership!
