Bell Museum + Planetarium: Be a part of the story!

Now is an exciting time to support the museum as a Charter Member. Give today to ensure access to an innovative museum with UMN-powered science programs, a public planetarium, and outdoor learning spaces. Even better--you’ll get access to exclusive benefits!

Every gift makes an impact. Members provide over a quarter of the funding it takes to provide generations of lifelong learners with authentic science experiences, and gifts of $1-$1,000 make up over 90% of our donations. A new monthly giving option is a great way to make a sustaining impact over time.

Be part of the story and join today! For more information, visit this website.
