Membership: A Gift that Gives Twice

Why choose a Gift Membership to the Abbe Museum?
Abbe Gift Memberships are the gift that gives twice—a gift for a friend, and a gift to the Abbe. A membership to the Abbe Museum is a tax-deductible contribution that supports the work of the museum, but also gives special benefits to the new member, such as free admission, discounts in the Abbe Shop, and reduced fees for special programs and events.

Gift Giving Ideas! Membership is perfect for...
· Students($20) who might be interested in using the Abbe Museum’s research library, or reading in our cozy Membership Lounge with WiFi.
· Individuals ($40) who have it all, or want fewer “things.”
· Households ($65) who enjoy visiting the Abbe for rainy days or year-round family activities and programs.
· Travelers and museum-lovers, who join at the Sweetgrass ($125) Level to enjoy reciprocal membership benefits at hundreds of museums across the United States and Canada through the NARM program.
· Life-long learners, who become members at the Birchbark ($300), Brown Ash ($500), and Quillwork ($1500) Levels enjoy additional benefits, such as a subscription to Native Peoples Magazine, and much more.
