Join Tahoe Maritime Museum and help our mission!

A membership with Tahoe Maritime Museum helps the museum achieve its mission and preserves the valuable history of the lake.  All members receive free entry into the museum and a subscription to our quarterly newsletter the MariTimes. 

Beginning at the $100 level, members are eligible to participate in the Museum’s Ride Boat program and cruise around Lake Tahoe on one of our beautiful historic boats. Tahoe Maritime Museum is also happy to announce that we will be participating in the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) program, and members at the $100 level and above will receive free admission to all of the other museums participating in the program. At the increasing membership levels we also offer store discounts, and free passes for guests, please contact Lora for more information at

We are actively planning public programs and events for all levels of membership. We love for members to get involved as volunteers, helping with things such as working as docents, assisting with mailing needs, participating in annex open houses, and acting as a first mate or captain for the ride boat program.

We appreciate any support or involvement you can give. No gift is too small and all funds are dedicated to expanding public programs, event costs, and operations so that we may better serve you and the public. If you do not wish to be an actively involved member and receive museum news but still wish to support the museum, we also accept donations to our annual fund which can remain anonymous upon request.
