Support the Wisconsin Maritime Museum
The Wisconsin Maritime Museum has defined our community’s character for more than 50 years. Through the lens of our state’s maritime heritage, we tell the story of the innovators, explorers and every day people who have impacted history – and who are shaping our future.
The Wisconsin Maritime Museum, like so many cultural institutions around the county, has felt the impacts of the pandemic. Like any mariner navigating rough seas, we have had to change course.
We’ve changed how we engage with our community and explored virtual educational opportunities for our students. We’re innovating new ways to be a cultural anchor for the entire state while remaining safe and responsible stewards of maritime heritage.
During a time when so many are struggling, we will continue to be a place for dialogue, community and learning. Together, we will weather this storm. But we need your help.
Double Your Gift!
A generous grant from the West Foundation will match your gift, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. In an effort to recoup lost revenue from the pandemic, this matching contribution makes your gift even more significant.
Doubling your gift means more classrooms, more visitors and more volunteers can experience Wisconsin’s maritime history.
Preserving our past. Celebrating our heritage. Inspiring our community.
With your support, the Wisconsin Maritime Museum welcomes all people to connect with our waterways through inclusive programming, engaging exhibtis and a world-class collection. A gift to the Wisconsin Maritime Museum’s annual appeal is truly transformative.
