Every day The Bellingham Maritime Museum inspires and educates visitors of all ages on the fascinating history of our seagoing past and present. Your gift helps the Museum continue its mission to preserve and share history as well as create space for future exhibits.

How Will Your Gift Help?

Education – It’s important to teach our children about the influence of our maritime heritage on exploration, industry, travel, community growth and even warfare. By being able to view and actually touch real artifacts, history becomes real. Click here to be directed to our online giving form.

Collections – Your gift helps preserve history for future generations and recognize the achievements and sacrifices of those who came before us. If you have items you think we could display, don’t leave it to chance that they may be lost forever. Please email the director, Mike Granat at to share the details of the artifact that you have.

Exhibits – Your gift will help support exhibits showcasing the many important artifacts in our collection and enable us to purchase and restore items for future generations.

We welcome corporate support and partners.  Please email the director, Mike Granat at  if your company is interested in supporting the museum.

Thank you for helping preserve memories and inspire the explorers of tomorrow!
