Normally the cost of our individual memberships ranges from $10 to $25 and our family memberships cost $50. Individual memberships will cost $5 and family memberships will cost $20.
All new and existing memberships will be extended until December 2021. While we don’t know exactly when we can open our doors again, we know that they will open and we want our members to have the opportunity to take advantage of their benefits for an extended period of time given the global circumstances.

You may not know that the Welland Museum is a non-profit. We rely on grants and donations to provide our services to the community.
Your donations, which includes memberships as well as individual or monthly giving, help us bring in new exhibits so you’re learning something new every time you visit the museum. You’ll help us preserve important artifacts so future generations can learn about our history. You will help us update the museum and make sure it’s accessible for everyone.
