Urban Lantern ExteriorThe Lamplighter Circle, named after the Urban Lantern towering over the Museum’s main lobby, provides support for the Museum that keeps our lantern lit—offering an extraordinary learning environment for the Fort Worth community and beyond.  Lamplighters make our lectures, world-class educational exhibits, IMAX films, and special events possible through their philanthropic giving.

When you join the Lamplighter Circle, or LLC, some of the basic benefits you and your family receive include invitations to annual Lamplighter events, previews of exhibits before they open to the public, a special Lamplighter Circle phone line for VIP services and scheduling, and much more!  There are five giving levels for you to choose from.  Click on each level for a full listing of benefits.

Lamplighter Circle          Lamplighter Bronze          Lamplighter Silver

Most importantly, being a Lamplighter means more than benefits and privileges.  Your involvement helps us continue to bring our entire community rich and rewarding educational experiences. Downloadable Lamplighter Benefits Matrix - PDF
