The support of our members is essential to the Museum's ability to host the Friends of the Museum meetings and the Annual Open House, renovate the museum's exhibits and develop new educational programs. Friends of the Museum receive announcements for the annual Open House and other events, news from the Museum, discounts at the Gift Shop and Mineral Sale, priority field trip and tour scheduling, and more! Friends are additionally invited to special guest lectures by Rutgers faculty and leading scientists from around the country.

As the museum moves forward, we hope to increase the amount of programs and museum opportunities available to our members. The support of our members is very important to us and we sincerely hope you will decide to join us on this mission by becoming a member or renewing your current membership.
