With the help of volunteers, sponsors, and donors, the annual Pot of Gold auction is a signature event for the museum. Since its inception in 1978, the Pot of Gold auction supports the museum's operating budget, education initiatives, and special programs.

This year, we can't wait to have you back in the museum to celebrate being together again. Now in its 46th year, we are celebrating with an "Out of This World, Intergalactic Gala". Guests are encouraged to dress in elegant space-themed attire. Come as a classy representative from Earth or as your favorite sci-fi character. The stars will align, whether you're "out there" or "down-to-earth". There will be live and silent auctions, dinner, dancing and much more!
