Make a Gift

The Te Ana Peua Museum thrives because of generous support from an international community of friends. Our transformation from display cases lining walls of the Tahuata town hall to a small but elegant world-class museum would not be possible without private philanthropy. Every gift counts. You can send a check to the address below, make your gift online or contact Barry Rolett (AFAR President) at  for electronic transfers.

Please make checks payable to the Andover Foundation for Archaeological Research.
