We rely on the generosity and support of individuals like you who value our mission and vision for the museum.
Right now, we’re doing everything possible to sustain basic operations of the museum while our hours have been adjusted to accommodate visitors on Thursday through Sunday only.
It's important to note that as an independent nonprofit organization, the Pax Museum doesn’t receive funding from the Federal or State governments. We remain grateful to the St Mary’s County government for leasing the museum buildings to us. Yet we pay for our utilities, salaries, insurance and accounting with revenues garnered from museum admissions, gift shop sales, memberships and facility rentals. To update our exhibits, our infrastructure, and maintain our aircraft, we rely on donations and grants.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support! If you are donating to the Southern Maryland Agile Response Team in their efforts to create and distribute Personal Protection Equipment to the community, please indicate this specifically in your PayPal transaction: "PPE". Thank you!
For in-kind or artifact donations, please contact us via the website here or call the admissions desk at 301-862-1900 x 2 and we will put you in touch with a member of our collections team.
