Thank you for considering membership with the National Sporting Library & Museum. Support raised through the membership program enables us to offer dynamic public programming, present special exhibitions, produce scholarly publications, and maintain our collection of art and books, ensuring the preservation of sporting culture and history for generations to come.

Our diverse benefits program has offerings for art, literature, and sporting enthusiast alike. All NSLM members have free access to the Museum’s changing exhibitions, and are invited to attend various events at the NSLM. Special tours with our Curators and Librarians give an inside look at our permanent collections of books and art, including unique pieces from the F. Ambrose Clark Rare Book Room.

If you would like to give the gift of membership to a friend or loved one, please contact Reid O'Connor at roconnor@nationalsporting.org or (540) 687-6542 x35.

 

The NSLM is thrilled to announce that we are partnering with our friends at the American Museum of Fly Fishing (AMFF) for a reciprocal membership program. All NSLM members at the Dual/Household level and above will be eligible for a one-year membership with AMFF, an organization which shares our passion for angling and outdoor pursuits, as well as houses rare and historic collections as the world's largest repository of angling-related items. 

If you are already a Dual/Household member of the NSLM and would like to redeem your membership to AMFF, please contact Raven Hudson at rhudson@nationalsporting.org to receive your members’ only link. All new members will receive an email with the link to become a member of AMFF upon joining the NSLM.
