Academic Membership at BHS—a vital resource for higher learning

Our Academic Memberships are ideal for institutions looking to enhance their programs and expand their offerings for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Our unique exhibitions, dynamic public programming, tours, retail, and collections full of content-rich archival materials, can be leveraged to introduce topics and ideas, jump-start discussions, and promote primary source research.
