Museum just keeps getting better

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

To the Editor,

The Putnam County Museum just keeps getting better and better, and there is no more telling evidence of this than the numbers of folk of all ages who entered the museum's doors in 2010.

By the end of the year, more than 3,300 men, women and children had attended openings of exhibits and programs designed to educate and delight, and special events.

Of course, many just stopped by to see what we are about.

The attendance in 2010 represents a 64 percent increase over 2009! And the number that stop by the Putnam County Museum from outside Putnam County continues to be a testament to the solid reputation the museum is earning.

With the two major exhibits each year, the presentation of different items from the permanent collection, and our rotating exhibits, visitors are able to explore something new each time they come by.

The highly acclaimed "Indiana's Native Peoples: The Earliest Inhabitants" exhibit will remain open through the school year so that school children can visit the exhibit and learn more about our early history throughout the school year.

If you haven't seen it, we urge you to do so. It is truly something special.

Show your support for this valuable Putnam County resource and make the Putnam County Museum a true destination.
