When You Join

Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass is a member organization committed to extraordinary glass experiences to spark fun, kindle creativity, and illuminate learning for all in a manner that is respectful. In all activities, museum members, employees, volunteers, and board members must act with integrity and in accordance with the most stringent ethical principles as well as the highest standards of objectivity.  Museums enjoy high public visibility and their members, employees, volunteers, and board members enjoy a generous measure of public esteem.  Therefore, the museum members, employees, volunteers, and board members are never wholly separable from their institution. If we find that a member, employee, volunteer, or board member does not respect our organization and our values then we reserve the right to revoke their membership and access to the museum.
