Friends of the Museum receive the Museum newsletter, a membership card, and a 10% discount on all purchases at the Museum gift shop. Joining the Friends of the Museum is a great way to help preserve the history of the men who lived and logged the great forests of Maine and help pass that history down through the generations.  Becoming a member is easy.  Download and print the membership form [.pdf; 89kb] and return it to us by e-mail or USPS.  Dues and donations can be paid by:
