For the first time in its history, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is offering memberships to its supporters. The memberships will come with members-only museum benefits and will provide the museum with funding to continue to improve the museum and hall of fame.
Charter members will receive an exclusive charter member patch, free admission to the museum, a 10% discount at the gift shop, a quarterly newsletter, membership card, members-only area at the rally and invitations to members-only events, all for $35 a year.
Lifetime memberships, priced at $500, entitle the member to an additional Life Member chevron along with the membership patch, a 20% discount at the gift shop, all of the other benefits available to annual members plus an exclusive denim jacket.
Membership fees paid to the museum will help the museum work on improving exhibits, developing a permanent collection, increasing awareness, and meeting other goals set by the museum's board.
"Not only does it provide a way for the museum to raise funds to move to the next level, but it offers individuals a simple way to show support for the museum and hall of fame, and provides a great way to preserve the history of the Rally for future generations," said Dave Davis, chair of the museum's membership committee.
Membership are available at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame or online.
