For a donation of at least $60/year or $5/month, benefits include:
  • Free tours of our famous mountaintop weather station during summer months
  • A one-year subscription to our member magazine, Windswept
  • Meteorology and climate research news from the summit of Mount Washington, straight to your inbox
  • Free admission to our Extreme Mount Washington summit museum (seasonal)
  • Advance notice of special events
  • A 15% discount on all purchases in our online shop and Extreme Mount Washington summit museum
  • Free admission to 300+ science museums through the ASTC Passport Program (restrictions apply; please see the ASTC website for details)

Hailing from all around the world, thousands of individuals support the Observatory’s nonprofit cause through membership, and we invite you to join the adventure!
