Adopt a Building, Collection, or Exhibit

If you have a collection, building, or exhibit that is close to your heart or your business you can sponsor it! Sponsorship can be in the form of a monetary donation or volunteer time to keep the building clean and in good repair. We keep funds designated for a specific exhibit, collection, or building separate and the funds are used only for your state purpose. Ask us about sponsoring your favorite part of our Museum this year!

Business Sponsorship

We have a variety of ways that your business can sponsor the PVM. You can sponsor events, kids camps, programming and lectures, exhibits, our main gallery, or just buy a business membership. Sponsoring us helps support our cause and our communities history! Check out the opportunities for 2021 here! To be come a member with a paper form click here!
