Funds raised by the Friends allow curators to make purchases that enhance the museum's ethnological collections, and help underwrite events and exhibits that share ASM collections with the public.

Among many benefits, Friends enjoy exclusive receptions, lectures, travel tours, and visits to private collections.

Your annual Friends membership is completely tax deductible!

What Friends Say About Being a 'Friend' . . .

“We have lots of fun together while raising much-needed acquisition funds for the collections division.”

Investigate & Learn

“We have gone behind the scenes at museums all over the region, met Native artists in their studios, met other collectors, and have visited private collections.”

Volunteer & Have Fun

“I have such a passion for Native American art that I consider being so closely involved with ASM’s amazing collections, and its curators, not only a pleasure but a privilege.
