For those interested in becoming Members:

Thank you for your interest in joining The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society.

As one of the few museums in Canada that receives little Federal or Provincial government funding, we are proud to be able to continue the restoration process solely based on the revenue from our admissions, gift shop sales, and through our donors and members. A gift to The Castle Society supports the ongoing restoration and curatorial process.

The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society has a membership structure to encourage personal or business involvement. Please join us in helping to conserve the Castle and bring its stories to life and enjoy the privileges that membership offers.
