The Montshire Museum of Science wishes to thank our generous sponsors, listed at right, for supporting the 2014 Benefit Auction.

Sponsorship support means that every winning bid goes directly to the Museum’s educational mission.


Auction decorations

Montshire's Benefit Auction would not be possible without the generous support of the businesses and individuals who donate items to benefit the Museum. We thank you for your charitable contributions and invaluable partnerships. Each donor is recognized in the auction catalog, and will be featured in a Valley News ad following the event.

To donate an item or service for the 2015 auction, contact us at


Planning for Montshire's 2015 Fiddlehead Fling is already underway! We wish to thank the many dedicated volunteers whose creativity, enthusiasm, and leadership make this event a success.
