Bowers Memberships Extended

The Bowers Museum greatly values our Members, whose generosity has made so many thrilling world-class exhibitions and programs possible through the years.

Honoring our friendship, the Museum is happy to announce all current memberships will be extended equal to the length of our closure, however long that takes.

Thank you for your continued support. In these trying times, the entire Bowers family is coming together in new ways that we know will inspire deeper connections in our community for years to come.

For those interested in becoming a member today, or in offering additional support to the Bowers during the closure, your overwhelming generosity is much appreciated. Please use the links below to join now or contact our team working from home at membership@bowers.org.
