LOVE the Frye? We Need Your Support!

Now is the time to show your LOVE for the Frye. For 65+ years, the Museum has been in a unique financial position, supported largely through investments and real estate bequeathed by founders Charles and Emma Frye.

Since 1952, we have provided free admission and hundreds of free programs annually. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we closed the Museum and suspended all on-site programs in order to aid the efforts of keeping our community healthy and safe. Yet the impacts have been far-reaching: all of our revenue streams have decreased in a short amount of time.

We need help from our community! If you are able to give during this time of great disruption, please consider making a gift to the museum you and so many others LOVE.

Once it is safe to gather again, we look forward to providing innovative and engaging experiences through exhibitions, programs, and the collection—all free of charge. These efforts are only made possible with your support. Please help us keep serving our community during and beyond these hard days. Thank you for your support!
