- - For the first time in its history, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is offering memberships to its supporters. The memberships will come with museum benefits not available to anyone else and - more importantly – will provide the museum with operational funding to continue to improve the museum and hall of fame.

Charter membership is available for a $35 annual fee. For that, members will receive an exclusive charter member patch, free admission to the museum, a 10% discount at the gift shop, a quarterly newsletter, membership card, members only area at the rally and invitations to members-only events. Lifetime memberships can also be purchased for $500, entitling the holder to an additional "Life Member" chevron along with their membership patch, a 20% discount at the gift shop, all of the other benefits available to annual members plus an exclusive denim jacket.

Membership fees paid to the museum will allow the museum to work on improving exhibits, developing a permanent collection, increasing awareness, and meeting other goals set by the museum’s board. Dave Davis, chair of the Museum’s Membership Committee said, "We’re very excited about this new membership program. Not only does it provide a way for the museum to raise funds to move to the next level, but it offers individuals a simple way to show support for the museum and hall of fame, and provides a great way to preserve the history of the Rally for future generations."

Membership can be purchased at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame or online at
