Friends Membership

The City of Raleigh Museum depends on the support of the community through annual memberships. One hundred percent of your membership goes towards museum programs and exhibitions. Through your generosity, we can continue our role as the only organization committed to the collection, preservation, and interpretation of Raleigh’s past, present, and future.

The Friends supports the mission of the museum through fundraising and other initiatives. It is a 501c(3) organization that previously served as the board for the museum when it operated as a non-profit entity.
