You Are Vital To The Success of The Putnam!

Because of Your Generosity:

  • Thousands of children learn about math and science through their experience in our Science Center
  • Our curators work to make sure our artifacts allow us to learn from our past for years to come through careful preservation
  • Families grow closer from shared experiences at the Putnam!

This Happens Because of Generous Donors Like YOU! 

The Putnam Museum and Science Center is a place where children are educated and immersed in hands-on learning, adults have the opportunity to travel to faraway lands and learn about our region’s changing landscape, and cultural treasures are preserved and available to educate future generations. We truly appreciate our supporters and all that is done to make these experiences possible.

Thank you for your help in ensuring that people throughout our region have the opportunity to benefit from the Putnam experience!
