The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum offers its members benefits such as free admission to the museum (for members and their guests), a discount in the Lighthouse Gift & Camp Store, a quarterly newsletter, and more.

To become a member, or to find out more about membership categories and benefits, please download a copy of the Membership Application.

The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum also accepts bequests, gifts of stock, real estate, boats, and vehicles. Please visit our Donations page for more information, and for information on our current capital campaign.

Consider joining the “Wickie” Circle, a special group of contributors.
(“Wickie” is a nickname associated with lighthouse keepers because one of their jobs was to trim the wick on the lighthouse lamp so it wouldn’t smoke and create a sooty film on the lighthouse lens.)
A “Wickie” pledges a minimum annual gift of $300 to support the operations of The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum. This special group is invited to exclusive events and special considerations.

Thank you for your support!
