Connect with history and ideas by doing, making and experiencing. Classes and special events complement their hands-on exhibit galleries. There is always something new to discover at the Putnam. The Putnam Science Center is an inspiring, hands-on experience for everyone! Interacting with a bilingual robot, launching rockets and discovering the power of 230,000 volts probably isn’t your typical day.
SPOTLIGHT ON THE QUAD CITIES
The Museum will feature three themes that introduce the Quad Cities community to a variety of Putnam Museum collections. Each theme will be represented by three artifacts showcased in the grand lobby. Each artifact will be formally "unveiled" on a specific day with corresponding events planned in the museum that will include movies, activities, curator talks and more.
June 17-18 - Q-C World Traveler
June 19-22 - Mississippi River People
June 23-24 - The Weird and Wonderful
Each theme will involve a variety of "hands-on, minds-on" activities that will foster community appreciation for The Putnam, and enlighten them about how important individuals have contributed to its collections.
