Become a National Civil War Museum Partner

Corporate partners are local, regional, and national, placing value on our mission. Partner with us as we provide cultural and educational programs for families, scholars, and school students in the community where your employees and customers live, visit and learn.

Corporate partners underwrite all of our great educational and community programs all year long.


COMMUNITY FREE DAYS - Three of the highest attendance days at the museum. They include speakers, children's activities, living history programs, and all-day fun. Community Free Days are non-exclusive and scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2023 - President's Day Weekend/Black History Month, Saturday, June 17, 2023 - Juneteenth Weekend, and Saturday, November 11, 2023 - Veteran's Day Weekend.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITS - Each year the museum curates two temporary exhibits. Temporary Exhibits open on February and June Community Free Days with special Members Only preview events. The exhibits highlight artifacts that are not in the permanent collection and focused on specific topics of interest. They remain open for twelve months, providing sponsors with additional exposure.

LESSONS IN HISTORY SPEAKER SERIES - A monthly free speaker series that brings experts from across the country to share insight and information on subjects that explore beyond the battlefield and go into the people, places, and politics of the American Civil that still ripple through modern current events.

FULL-DAY SYMPOSIA - Sponsor a full day of educational programming highlighting an individual or subject that helped shape the history of the American Civil War. In 2023, we will host two events, August 12, 2023, The George Armstrong Custer Civil War and Plains War Symposium, and October 21, 2023, Slavery and Abolition. Stay tuned for speaker lists. These symposia are available in-person and virtually.
