The National Museum of the Great Lakes is launching a new Membership Category “The Admiral Society” meant to engage a higher level of interaction between the museum and leadership-level supporters. The Admiral Society invites individuals to join the National Museum of the Great Lakes as members at an annual support level of $5,000 (Admiral) or $2,500 (Vice Admiral).

The Admiral Society members play an active role in shaping portions of the museum’s curation and programming. Part of each member’s annual contribution will fund “future-building” maritime history projects (artifact acquisition, exhibition creation, educational outreach opportunities, etc.) as determined by The Admiral Society members.
