COVID-19 Pandemic Member Drive

Join today. Help preserve a community asset for tomorrow.

Become a member today for only $50. Your membership supports:
  • Over 4,500 museum visitors a year
  • 290 Youth-group visitors/year
  • Over 280 adult group visitors/year
  • Hundreds of visitors to the Legacy Gardens (free)
  • Typically six Music in the Gardens concerts per (non-COVID) year
  • Our new (in 2019) Boathouse has already hosted (prior to the COVID shutdown):
    • Eight weddings and related events
    • Eleven community events
    • Eleven business events
    • Four family events
    • Twenty four museum classes
    • Thirty Alexandria Community Education education classes
  • The inaugural Legacy of The Lakes Boat Parade on July 11th entertained hundreds of area people watching on the shoreline.

The Museum is an important community asset. We’re still open but our operating budget has been devastated by the decline in admission revenue due to the COVID pandemic.

Your membership will help keep the museum doors open and our staff employed. As an added bonus, new members joining during this membership drive will receive one complimentary general admission ticket for every 2021 Music in The Gardens (Reg. $10 each). Join today! It only takes a minute.
