Mother Nature: Modern Muse
February 1 - June 30
Life on Earth has been evolving for billions of years. From single-celled organisms to giant blue whales, the story of life is one of trial and error. Mother Nature is continually discovering unique and innovative solutions and strategies that support life on Earth. While not all of Mother Nature’s solutions are elegant, many are truly amazing. Recognition of this has led to a growing trend in science and technology to look to nature in our search for innovative strategies, designs and solutions.
The exhibit includes examples from the Putnam’s collection, supplemental reading material, and an opportunity to try your hand at your own design. Join us at the Putnam Museum and Science Center as we celebrate just a few of the innovations of Mother Nature, our modern muse.
Exhibit admission is included in the price of general admission—$9 for adults, $8 for youth (ages 3-18), seniors, college students and military. Through the Putnam’s Museums for All program, admission is $1 per person for households with the presentation of an EBT card. Admission is free for members.
