As a premier member and partner in Bishop Museum’s work, your generous membership support at the Museum Explorer level or beyond provides direct support to sustain the best possible care of the Museum’s Hawaiian and Pacific collections. Your premier membership dues also fund the development of new exhibits and educational programs, meaning your contributions have a direct and positive educational impact on our community!

Premier membership is also a wonderful way to nurture your special relationship with the museum. Enjoy a premier membership card, special guest privileges, and exclusive opportunities to view the museum’s collections.  As part of Bishop Museum’s inner circle, you’ll also enjoy an array of intimate events and experiences  throughout the year, all designed to bring your closer to the Bishop Museum’s collections, scholarship, and stories in personal and meaningful ways.

Premier membership means being part of a group of dedicated patrons who support Bishop Museum’s continued development as an educational gathering place and cultural center dedicated to exploring the culture and science of Hawai‘i and the Pacific, and who endeavor to dream big for the Museum’s future. Won’t you join us and perpetuate the Museum’s powerful legacy and heritage for our community, Hawai‘i, and the Pacific?
