Get Involved With The Danish Heritage Preservation Society

The Heritage Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Danevang’s past.
Membership is open to everyone. Members receive discounts in the Gift Shop, Lecture Admissions, Invitations to Exhibit Openings, and Much More!


The members of the Danish Heritage Preservation Society and many neighborhood supporters have one goal in mind: to preserve the hastily disappearing past of our small community for the education of future generations.

The Danish Capital of Texas 5K Fun Run is one of the fundraising activities currently being held by the museum. Please follow the link in our Events section to sign up for the run, or you may donate to the museum and the run by using or donation widget.
