Friends of Salem


Becoming a member of Old Salem Museums & Gardens allows you to connect with others who share your love of history. Everyday new families, antique lovers, and garden enthusiasts become members of Old Salem and are introduced to opportunities they never considered and experiences they deeply enjoy. The family of friends and members is always growing, and there is a place for you at Old Salem.

Membership provides critical annual operating funds for our museum efforts. Gifts from members help us develop compelling new programs, design exciting new exhibits, plant vegetables and herbs in our gardens, produce original puppet shows, and create wonderful music experiences for our visitors.
