Your Financial Support Matters

Share Texas history through a donation or online purchase.

Sustain the Museum's Educational Mission

Our closure this year in the interest of community safety has taken a financial toll. This year’s annual fund drive is more critical to the Museum’s future than ever before, and it starts with you.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation or an online purchase today, secure in the knowledge that it will have a far-reaching impact, increasing understanding of the diverse and ever-changing Story of Texas.

The Need is Dire

  • We are struggling to find the resources to make our work possible, like so many cultural institutions this year.
  • The Museum is dependent on exhibit admissions, movie tickets, venue rentals, memberships, and retail sales for more than 70% of our operational budget.
  • Due to the pandemic, we have experienced more than an 80% drop in monthly income, an unsustainable reality as we head into 2021.
  • We need your help to maintain educational programming and exhibitions.

Why it Matters

  • Every donation, membership, and purchase directly supports the continuation of our mission-centric programming and the professional staff required to make it the best it can be.
  • Your contribution helps us reach more than 100,000 students, teachers, and chaperones annually.´╗┐
  • The exploration of our past teaches vital skills and provides the foundation for strong, vibrant Texas communities.
