A New Goal – 1,000 Memberships in 2021

Written by Molly LaRocco, Membership Coordinator

The Museum’s membership program is at the heart of the organization. Without our members, we cannot fully express our mission and vision. The Museum’s membership program began over 30 years ago and has continued to be an integral part of our organization. 

Annual membership holders receive 12 months of free admission to your Museum and hundreds of museums around the country! Check out our reciprocal partners HERE. Annual memberships also include discounts in Seasons: The Museum Store, complimentary member-only events, imaginative educational programming, special event invitations, our digital Museum newsletter and more!

In line with the Museum’s vision to expose the widest audience possible to the creativity and ingenuity of the human spirit through art, science and history within the context of cultural diversity, our membership program showed steady growth over the past few years. By the end of February 2020, the program was set to hit a huge milestone – 1000 memberships!  

Weeks later, the pandemic hit the Clarksville-Montgomery County community. The effect was felt as our memberships dwindled and visitation slowed. At the time, engagement with our members continued through online videos and social media. The Museum slowly opened, and little by little visitors began to come regularly. Then, on May 1, the Museum extended to full operating hours. 

May 1 marked a new start and a renewed sense of ambition for reaching our milestone, so we created a new membership drive – 1000 Memberships in 2021. To welcome everyone back to the membership program, we are offering 50% off Museum memberships!

Help us reach our goal by renewing your membership, buying a new one or gifting one to a friend or family member. Current members may take advantage of this limited-time offer by renewing their membership early. Purchase your membership HERE

Membership growth means a growing relationship with our community. We missed you and are excited to welcome you back!
