As a small, seasonal, not-for-profit museum, we are deeply grateful for the support from members and friends. We are committed to keeping  admission free for all, but rely heavily upon your generosity. We invite you to help us continue to grow, expand museum programing and ensure our future.

Why Membership is Important

Whether you visit us once a week or once every few years, we welcome you and thank you for your financial commitment. When you become a member of CHS, you are saying yes to the preservation of history of Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands. Your support is crucial to our on-going work in preservation, education, and the care and maintenance of the museum’s collections.  With membership to the Cuttyhunk Historical Society comes the gift of knowing that you are helping preserve the culture and history of these islands for generations to come.

The Society is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) publicly-supported organization and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law. Gift memberships are also available and the perfect way to celebrate friendship and Cuttyhunk. Click here for a downloadable membership form. Or visit the museum to join or renew in person!
