The Anniston Museum of Natural History, Berman Museum, and Longleaf Botanical Gardens make up the Anniston Museums and Gardens. City and county support covers some operating expense, but we depend heavily on the generosity of the public to cover expenses that extend beyond day-to-day operations. This includes educational programs, an aggressive changing exhibits schedule, and renewing permanent exhibits and gardens.
Tax deductible donations are a way to honor a special person or can be given in memory of someone. The amount does not matter. All donations are greatly appreciated. That person or family will be promptly notified of the gift.
Donations may also be made to the Anniston Museum Endowment Corporation, the Museum League, the Berman Foundation, the Berman Alliance, and the Longleaf Foundation. These organizations provide much needed direct support to the museums and gardens by underwriting temporary exhibits or purchasing supplies and equipment used to enhance the visitor experience.
