The Germantown Museum
A project in the making
How to Help
We need you to spread the story of the Germantown Museum. The Germantown community is expected to give full support to the creation of our museum, but we all need to help get the word out. The staff of Germantown Museum will be happy to speak to your Garden Club, Civic Club, Church Organization or other gathering of Germantown citizens to present the story of building our Germantown Museum. We need you to become knowledgeable of the project and tell your fellow Germantown friends.
Your Artifacts and Stories
Everyone has interesting items stored in their attic or barn. We all have stories of Germantown's history. The Museum Board would be delighted to discuss the donation of artifacts or recording your stories. Please contact us for details.
Once we become operational, we will need volunteers to help with the many task needed to support a quality museum. Can you serve as a docent? Do you have the artistic talent to help create exhibits presentation? Would you like to learn how to restore the many artifacts that tell the Germantown story? There is a place and job for many volunteers; from sharing your talents in our speakers bureau to writing research articles to document historic events, The Germantown Museum can find a place for your volunteer help. A major part of Germantown's history is volunteerism. This tradition continues to this day. Our museum is expected to be run by a volunteer staff.
The expenses of the Museum will be covered by funding from a variety of sources. We anticipate grant money will be available and are always looking for volunteers with grant writing experience.
Corporate sponsorships are available for companies in the Germantown area. This opportunity is a wonderful way for your business to support the community that supports you. Your company name will be listed in Museum publications and you may want to sponsor a specific display with credit be shown for your support.
Memberships are also available for families and individuals. Members will be invited to special events and have an opportunity to get an early peek at new exhibits.
