Become a Friend of The Museum and Get Invovled with Our Newest Group!

The Friends of the Allen County Museum help secure the future of the museum by creating and assisting with year-round events and activities that generate operating support.  Friends help the museum organize events, activities, lectures and more.  Your time and support is crucial to helping the museum grow and remain a vibrant part of our communty.

Put your love of cultural heritage and history into action by joining the Friends of the Museum.  As a Freind, attend exclusive invitation-only events, such as Drinks with The Director, where Director Amy Craft will show your items from the museum's permanent collection.  Or maybe you enjoy crafting, where you learn new hands-on skills.  Whatever excites you, The Freinds will have something for you!

It's easy to join!  There are two membership levels.  Click the one that works best for you!

      I want to volunteer!  Make a contribution to the Friends of the Museum for $150 and volunteer both your time and skill to help the museum.

     I'd rather just donate!  Make a contribution of $300 to Freinds of the Museum and no volunteering is required.

To become a Freind of the Museum, please call Donna Collins at 419-222-9426.
