Renew your NHMU Membership

Thank you for your Membership!

Like many organizations in our community, the Natural History Museum of Utah has suffered devastating financial losses due to COVID-19.

Although the Museum's galleries are temporarily closed, we hope you'll consider renewing now to help NHMU through these unchartered times. Your support will help us continue to inspire and amaze future generations online today, and ensure we're ready to welcome the public when we're able. 

Many Member have asked what impact our closure will have on their current membership. Know that while we're closed, we're pausing your membership and will restart it when we reopen. If you're up for renewal, we hope you'll renew today—and should you renew now—your new one-year membership won't start until your extended membership term is complete. 

Please know that as reopening efforts in our community continue to move forward, we are working hard to get NHMU ready to open and learning from the experiences of our colleagues at other institutions locally and across the country. Please check back on our website for updated information. 

Please see below for Museum Membership levels and benefits information. To renew at your desired level, please click the link. For more information, please contact the Membership Team at 801-585-9054 or membership@nhmu.utah.edu.
