The construction of the new building cost the Museum $10.5 million and although the move is virtually complete, there are still opportunities to participate in the Capital Campaign.

Your gift could:

  • Receive permanent recognition on the beautiful NVision Plaza, at the front of the Museum.
  • Support an exhibit that interests you.
  • Place your name or your company name on the Paver Path through the amazing collection of artifacts in the 9-acre Heritage Park outside the Museum.
  • Provide for the restoration of the USS James K. Polk submarine sail.
  • Give a donation in any amount as a part of our on-going appeal -- and we'll put your support to good use!

For any of these opportunities, contact Charles Lowery, Director of Development, at 505-245-2137, ext. 110.
