With new and diverse exhibitions opening each year, a growing permanent collection, special events, and educational programs for all ages, there is something for everyone at the St. Joseph Museums.  It is all possible through the generous support of our members.  All of the sites under the St. Joseph Museums umbrella depend on members, at all levels, to make it possible to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit items that reflect the history of the St. Joseph area and its citizens.  Throughout the year, we strive to inspire, delight, and teach a diverse audience from throughout the region and the country.
