Planned Giving

Consider leaving a legacy at the Museum to ensure that our exhibits, collections, and research scientists can inspire, inform, and delight generations to come.

 A well-planned gift can support the Museum’s future, while helping you and your family achieve your financial goals, such as lowering your tax liability or providing an income source for life.
