Member Recognition in the Museum

Although many museums do not allow names on cases, the A.E. Seaman Mineral Museum recognizes certain levels of membership with names on cases. A listing of exhibit cases available for member recognition and the minimum level of donation is available upon request. Selection of an exhibit case for your name is first come first serve and your name can remain on your chosen case as long as you renew your membership before it expires. While an annual donation is required to be recognized on an exhibit case, you will continue to be recognized on the museum's "Wall of Fame" near the entrance to the exhibit hall. The membership year begins bi-annually November 1 and May 1.

Keeping one’s name on an exhibit case in perpetuity requires a substantial donation to “endow” the exhibit case, thereby providing an equivalent stream of income in perpetuity. 

Those who had their names on a case in the museum’s old location will be recognized in our new location on our “Wall of Fame” near the entrance to the exhibit hall.
