Become a Friend!

Join Us In Celebrating The History of Our City!


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.

Join or Renew your Friends Membership

We are happy to have you as a Friend! Members get free admission to a number of openings and programs at the Museum, and also can take advantage of discounts at the Museum store and for venue rentals if you’d like to organize an event.
