Support the Museum

Innovations and improvements to the Museum cannot happen without considerable expense. We are fortunate to have many friends who appreciate our efforts and help us in our endeavors. Nevertheless, we are always in need of more funding! Please consider a membership to the Museum and/or a donation to our cause.


We welcome you to become a member of the Matthews Museum of Maine Heritage. You may click here for a printable Membership Application which you may mail in with your check, or use the online membership payment option below.

Our year ends on October 31, and payments for membership renewals are encouraged by November 30. New members joining from May 1 to October 31 will receive an additional full year of membership. All members will receive timely "Museum Musings" newsletters either by email (preferred) or U.S. Mail. Address labels will contain a two-digit date code indicating the status of your membership expiration. Sending renewal payments prior to a dues notice will save your museum valuable costs. Please help us save! If there is a '13 on your address label, you have paid your dues! Otherwise, your dues are due.

Gift Memberships help the Matthews Museum to improve forever. Give a gift membership to a friend, family member, or neighbor this year.

Thank you for joining the Museum!
