The museum is a true Bremer County Treasure! I want to know how to support it!!

Donate using Paypal to Become a member! Visit often and bring friends! Buy our books! Volunteer! Encourage your employer to take a collection (casual day?) to benefit the museum! Sponsor a room, a month or restoration of an artifact! So many ways to support!

I have an old "thing" from my Great Great Grandma and want to donate it to the museum...

We have a pdf for that. It's right....... over......... there -->

I'd like to volunteer but....

Yes, we ALL have a but... What can you do from home? Can you locate and write up grants? Can you research and put together a book? Can you scan images at high resolution? What about when you are at Walmart... pick up an extra pack of toilet tissue for the museum? An extra pack of water bottles? Paper towels? An air cleaner? A dehumidifier? LED lightbulbs? Printer paper? Envelopes? How about when you are ordering from Amazon... are you using are your purchases benefiting the museum? can you add a couple of products to your order for the museum? Do you sell on eBay? You can automatically donate to BCHS when your item sells. There are a ton of ways to help without being a board member or tour guide. :)
