Want to Help Us?

There are several ways that you can help.

1)     Become a member.  Contact us now and join those who contribute to making history live in Palmyra. Cost of membership is $15 per year per individual.


2)     Volunteer. You can help us build, clean, organize, garden, write, and do many of the myriad tasks that have to be done in an all-volunteer organization. (Any amount of time, great or small, is welcome.) Currently, we need help to implement our new Past Perfect software program that keeps track of our collection. We are also seeking a new newsletter editor.


3)     Donate. We welcome memorial and cash donations as well as historical objects and records. If you have an item to donate that you think might have historical value, please contact us.


4)     Visit. Visit the museum and bring your friends.
