Membership is your gateway to the museum and offers free general admission all year, along with other valuable benefits. Get the most out of your museum visits while supporting our mission.


The CR Smith Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and generates earned revenues from a number of sources including admissions, memberships, event rentals and its store. However, to close its operating gap, the museum depends on donations from corporations, foundations and private individuals.

Your gift to the museum is tax deductible under the IRS code to the extent allowed by law. You can make a gift for general operating purposes or contribute to a specific purpose if you wish. For more information about making a gift, email giving@crsmithmuseum.org.


The CR Smith Museum has a great group of enthusiastic volunteers who provide many essential services to the museum. Volunteers greet visitors, work in the museum store, help with after-hours events and programs, provide tours, perform administrative duties and assist with cataloging the museum’s collection. It’s a fun way to get involved, meet new people and learn about the fascinating world of aviation.
