Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has grown to be recognized as one of the most visited museums in the world. This achievement requires a dedicated staff, a large volunteer force, and a supportive community, like the thousands of individuals and families who have become Meijer Gardens members. As we conclude our 20th year, we pay special tribute to the 858 member households who were with us in the beginning—and every year since.
