Become a Member
Why become a member?
A member of the USS Silversides Submarine Museum is someone who cares about our history. A member is a person that knows that we must never forget the past, nor the sacrifices others have made on our behalf.
The museum receives no tax dollars from outside sources. We are a 501(c) non-profit and we sustain ourselves on admissions to the museum, donations, and most importantly, memberships from patriots like you.
Membership at the Silversides grants you a number of privileges, however, the most important benefit is the knowledge that your annual membership fee enables us to maintain our real Gato-class World War 2 submarine, empowers us to design new exhibits and helps us preserve our history for generations to come.
