Each special interest council offers a variety of programs, lectures and events. As a museum member, we welcome your participation. Many council’s programs are offered free of charge while others require a small fee to attend. Museum members that also become a member of a specific special interest council pay a discounted fee for programs and events produced by that council. Information on council membership and a complete listing of each council’s activities can be found here: http://www.psmuseum.org/membership/councils/.
