Support the Bell

More than 110,000 visitors each year rely on the Bell Museum to ignite their curiosity and deepen their understanding of their connection to the natural world.

As the state's official natural history museum, we rely on the support of individuals, corporations and private foundations to bring world-class exhibits, STEM education programs and essential collections-based research to you each and every day. Just in case you didn't know it yet, donors are kind of a big deal!
