The General Henry Knox Museum is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization which relies on the generosity of its supporters to survive. Membership dues, tour admissions, and ticket and gift shop sales do not cover the costs needed to operate the Museum. Each year we look to donations to help us keep the story of Henry Knox alive.
Supporters may donate any amount in unrestricted funds, allowing Knox Museum to pay its bills and keep the doors open so that we may continue to offer quality education, preservation, military, and community programming throughout the year.
Gifts of $1000 or more provide for membership in our Signature Society. Details and membership benefits are below.
Thank you for your support!

Volunteer is a much-abused word. Good synonyms might include reader, researcher, garden lover, people-person, engaged, educator, mentor, the list goes on. Sadly, sometimes, interested individuals, like you, sign on to volunteer for an organization and you quickly become disillusioned or feel under appreciated.
We encourage you to investigate the Knox Museum. We have a love of history and community. We are building a robust event season, while we anticipate annual visitors, host field trips, and gather to celebrate our history while looking to our future. We know our success this year, and in future years, depends on you. We want to celebrate our mission in dozens of ways with your help and our appreciation in our continued evolution.

Support Restoration Work
Make a contribution to help restore General Henry Knox’s famous
Frothingham bed (dubbed a “gem” by noted antiques dealer Leigh Keno) and become a member of the “Bedfellow Society.” This unique bed is a true historic treasure, and the crown jewel of Knox Museum’s collections.
Phase II Fundraising – Knox Museum is raising $30,000 for Phase II of a three-phased project to restore the General’s Bedroom. Phase I restored the room with historically accurate paint and wallpaper: Phase II is restoring the bed itself; and using the 1806 inventory of the Mansion, Phase III will research and secure appropriate carpeting and other bedroom furnishings.
Help us raise the remaining $5,000 needed to meet the $30,000 Phase II need, so restoration can continue. Gifts will support research on the bed, restoration work, and period hangings.
Your gift will help towards the purchase of materials for the bed hangings:
