Give the Gift of Membership!
Give a gift that supports a worthy institution and can also bring friends and family so much enjoyment. Membership is a wonderful present for families with young children who live near a zoo or aquarium. If you are looking for a gift for someone special in your life, consider the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium your museum of choice.
Remember, the Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium is affiliated with the Smithsonian and Association of Zoos & Aquariums, which means you and your gift recipients receive discounts to many national museums across the country.
For more information about gifts of membership, contact Danelle Schroeder, Memberships & Banquets Coordinator, at 563-557-9545 x220 or email@example.com

Obtaining the matching gift through your employer is usually a simple process typically filling out a form obtained through your Human Resources department.
