Other Ways to Give

Aside from an outright donation to support our mission, you can support the institution in the following ways:

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.

Membership Options
