Kentucky Museum - Membership


When you join the Kentucky Museum Friends, you become a part of our story and enjoy exclusive benefits and opportunities to engage with us. 

Every dollar of your membership funds the people, resources, and facilities that enable us to present engaging exhibitions and programs that foster a love of art, history, and culture. 

While WKU provides for the majority of our staffing and operations, our Friends are what empower us to climb higher. In 2018-19, the Friends helped...

  • Purchase supplies for exhibitions not funded by grants or sponsors.
  • Recognize the achievements of our student docents with unique museum swag.
  • Help provide children from low-income families with scholarships to attend museum camps.
  • Support free public events for our community, such as WKU Student FunShops and Christmas in Kentucky.
  • Support Museum team members attending the Alliance of Academic Museums and Galleries conference to learn best practices, create partnerships, and bring back new, innovative ideas.

Your membership is more than these line items. It is an investment in helping us achieve our the outcomes of service and stewardship that we want to achieve. These outcomes revolve around our founding concept of being a place where "Kentuckians know Kentucky" and all that makes our region -- and those who call it home -- unique.
