Help the Museum Society reach our matching amount by donating here on May 8. All donations support the costs of reopening safely and fabulously: with repairs made and precautions taken, and with new exhibits and projects to show our returning public.You can also mail a check to Silver City Museum Society with the memo line "Give Grandly" and it will be counted toward our matching goal of $400 and our overall goal of $5,000.
