Berkshire Museum Armed and Dangerous

Crane Society

Berkshire Museum depends on our Crane Society to provide critical philanthropic support for our education programs. These programs proudly serve, encourage, and inspire thousands of school children each year through hands on, curriculum based activities. Just this past year alone, Berkshire Museum served over 16,000 school children, which is the highest number we have ever served in our nearly 110 year history.

Crane Society members receive invaluable benefits such as invitations to unique travel opportunities and social events, season passes to Little Cinema, and Acknowledgement on the Berkshire Museum website, in the Leadership Circle newsletter, and in the Museum’s lobby, plus much more.

We hope you might consider joining, renewing, or upgrading to the Crane Society today by reviewing the benefits listed below and selecting the option that works best for you.
