The Fellows are visionary benefactors and community leaders committed to the Museum’s mission “to inspire wonder, discovery and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds.” Fellows play a critical role in the support and growth of the Natural History Museum and in its pursuit of excellence in education, exhibitions and research.
This 100-year old Museum is now brand new—with five new permanent exhibits, 3 1/2 acres of new gardens and nature experiences, and greatly enhance visitor amenities. Your generous Fellows support will entitle you to exclusive access and benefits: behind-the-scenes tours with curators, gallery sleepovers, exhibition openings, and receptions, off-site experiences with NHM scientists, as well as VIP access to all lectures and other Museum programs.

The generosity of the Fellows provides learning experiences for more than one million children and families in our community each year. Annual Fellows support allows more than 250,000 school children to visit the Museum for free and helps 15 scientific departments to conduct important research on biodiversity around the globe. In return, Fellows enjoy fantastic benefits all year long, including exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Museum's collection. Join, renew, or upgrade
The Centennial Celebration on June 8, 2013 was a black-tie affair to remember! The celebration began with a cocktail reception, a preview of the new Nature Gardens and Nature Lab, and continued inside with an exquisite dinner menu designed by celebrity chefs, Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Animal. Following the exquisite meal guests engaged in the Grand Centennial Celebration After Party in the Nature Gardens to witness the ultimate reveal of the Otis Booth Pavilion fin whale.
