Become a Friend of the MIT Museum
A note from MIT Museum Director, John Durant
Great museums don't just happen... they reflect the loyalty and support of their friends. These are the people who not only appreciate the Museum's vital link between the MIT community and public at large, but also the inspiration, culture and sense of community it provides. Friends like you!
Thanks to you, the MIT Museum continues to inspire our visitors. From launching Rivers of Ice: Vanishing Glaciers of the Himalaya, which marked the Museum's new era of regularly changing special exhibitions; to the inaugural opening of the Kurtz Gallery for Photography, you know that we educate and entertain from across the ages and from around the world. Through our presentations of exhibitions, lectures, school programs and special events, including the Cambridge Science Festival, we demonstrate our commitment to cross-disciplinary science learning and community outreach.
I invite your support as a Friend of the Museum. By becoming a Friend, you join other like-minded supporters who share a passion for MIT's unique culture of research, teaching and problem-solving.
2013 promises even greater momentum with an incredible suite of educational and public programs and the constantly evolving Cambridge Science Festival. It would be easy to rest on our laurels, but we are too aware of so many more people who can be engaged with and inspired by the Museum. We have the extraordinary professional staff to imagine new programs, but we depend on Friends and their generous support to bring new ideas to fruition.
It's friends like you who help us further the goals of the MIT Museum. Let's not be content with the success we see. Through your support, you will help us transform and catalyze the MIT Museum. Together, we can help others to explore, discover and experience the potential for even more.
On behalf of all the youth and adults who discover science and technology at the MIT Museum, thank you for your consideration.
