Membership


Being a member of the Coos History Museum has its perks! We have joined the North American Reciprocal Museum Association. Museum members who join at the Friend-level or higher will be rewarded with reciprocal benefits at 1103 institutions nationwide, including free or reduced admission.

Your new CHM membership card will feature a special NARM sticker/graphic that will provide you with free or reduced admission and museum store discounts just like when you visit us at home! It is truly a great deal and we hope you will consider taking advantage of it. If you have already renewed your membership at your old level and you would like to upgrade to qualify for the NARM benefits, just pay the difference and we will give you the upgrade.

Click on this link to see which museums participate in the NARM program. CHM will be added to the list in the next quarterly update of the Directory.

Waterways is the quarterly publication of the Coos County Historical Society and sent to all members.

All membership subscriptions are for one year with no recurring payments. Your membership is effective when you receive your membership card and thank you letter in the mail.

If paying by PayPal, be sure to enter your shipping address so the letter and membership card can be mailed to you. Or click here for a printable membership application form if you would rather mail in your payment.
