Aside from an outright donation to support our mission, you can support the institution in the following ways:
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 Melissa Wersinger, Membership Manager, at 563-557-9545 x213.
