There's a Lot to Learn About the World Around You
The world of nature—both in the present and the pre-historic—can awe and inspire you. At the Putnam Museum, we have been presenting educational information about nature (and how humans interact with it) for over 150 years!
Our Mother Nature: Modern Muse exhibit shows how humans have taken inspiration from the world around us to make new inventions. Our Halls of Minerals and Mammals put the natural world on display for all to enjoy.
When it comes to understanding the ecological systems of our own area and the surrounding Mississippi River basin, visitors will find all kinds of interesting information in the museum’s Black Earth | Big River exhibit. There’s so much to discover!
