Ways to Support the Museum

Support the Tribute Exhibit Honoring Hannah Steinweg McDonald

Bouldering on the Beach: A New Climbing Exhibit, Coming 2021

In late 2020, Hannah Steinweg McDonald, a beloved former employee of the Museum, died suddenly leaving behind her husband and two beautiful young boys. We are creating an exhibit to honor her remarkable spirit and significant contributions to our community and the Museum’s growth and development. You can join us.
