Help Support the Museum!

Become a valued member!

Our membership provides the backbone of support for our Museum’s operations. In an era when government grants to organizations such as ours are diminishing, the role our members play is of paramount importance.  We are most appreciative of the contributions our hundreds of members make, financial and otherwise.  Please join us in our effort to preserve, research and interpret the artifacts and stories relating to Virginia’s menhaden fisheries and other maritime activities of the lower Chesapeake Bay region. Individual and corporate memberships are available.
