We Can’t Do It Without You
State and federal money helped build the 96,000-square-foot New Mexico History Museum, but it couldn’t have been completed without donations from private supporters and the help of Museum of New Mexico Foundation. As we move forward, the Exhibitions Development Fund strengthens our ability to offer a lively rotation of new and engaging exhibits, and the Annual Fund for Museum Education supports programs that help everyone from schoolchildren to adults expand their knowledge of our past and present.

Membership in the Museum of New Mexico Foundation supports not only the History Museum but its sister institutions: the New Mexico Museum of Art; Museum of International Folk Art; Museum of Indian Arts & Culture; state monuments; and the Office of Archaeological Studies. Members enjoy free admission to these institutions, invitations to special events, discounts at museum shops, and a subscription to El Palacio, the award-winning magazine of the state museums.

Volunteers are critical to achieving our mission and lend their expertise by giving exhibition tours, helping catalogue and house collections of artifacts, photos and documents, and jumping in on a variety of other needs. You’ll see people who share a love of history volunteering at the front desk and in the exhibitions as well as in the Photo Archives, among the stacks of the Fray Angélico Chávez History Library, inside the Palace Press, and downstairs in the Collections Vault. For information on how to help, contact Rene Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The museum actively collects artifacts, photographs, maps, documents, textiles, and more that support our mission and illustrate the diverse cultures of the state and the Southwest borderlands. We cannot accept unsolicited donations through the mail or in person, but are happy to talk with you about donations of artifacts to our collections. Please contact Patricia Hewitt at email@example.com for information.
