Smithsonian Affiliations Program

As one of only four Smithsonian Affiliations members in Georgia, the Southern Museum offers visitors the kind of quality programs, exhibits and historical perspectives that motivate millions of visitors to visit Smithsonian Institutions each year. As a member of the program, the Southern Museum has the opportunity to incorporate artifacts from the Smithsonian Institution's collections, such as Civil War or transportation relics, into its own exhibits. The Museum also hosts exhibits from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). These privileges supplement the Museum offerings, bringing the excitement and marvel of the Smithsonian Institute to your neighborhood.

Finally, those who become members of the Southern Museum can also become a member of the Smithsonian Institution. Ask for details at the information desk in the Museum or click here for more information on memberships.
