Demonstrate your commitment to the field your organization serves by participating as an Exhibit Sponsor. Sponsorship includes prominent recognition throughout the Museum and unique company benefits. 

Strengthen Branding: Link your name to a world-class museum in the eyes of healthcare consumers and professionals through the Museum’s exhibit materials including exhibit title panels, exhibit guides, website, reception invitations and promotional materials—all of which prominently credit exhibit sponsors. Moreover, an aggressive marketing and advertising campaign will leverage various advertising media in addition to partnerships with industry, health organizations and others to achieve maximum visibility. Upper-level sponsors also gain valuable advertising space in exhibit-related materials.

Enhance Image: Demonstrate your commitment to educating the public about the complexities and curiosities of the human body and solidify your position as a corporate leader by investing in a unique educational endeavor.

Provide Privileges: In addition to the opportunity to host public events and community programs, sponsors may receive complimentary use of the Museum’s historic lakefront mansion for private corporate events, such as dinners, receptions and meetings. Corporations have found these events to be a unique and effective tool for reaching customers, clients and employees, and for launching a new product or division. Other hospitality benefits include exclusive guided tours, complimentary admission passes and a discount in the Museum store.

Create Opportunities: The Museum’s development department will work with you to customize your sponsorship benefits to complement your company’s strategic marketing objectives and philanthropic priorities.

If your company or association might be interested in our exhibit sponsorship opportunities, please contact us at 312.642.6502 ext. 3113 or at for current opportunities.

Thank you to our generous donors for the museum’s history!
