Your support is needed now more than ever.

Because the Montshire is temporarily closed to the public, our daily sources of operating revenue have been disrupted. Please consider a gift to the Montshire to help us weather this crisis and prepare to welcome you once again.

Science is what moves us forward, and we are committed to reopening as soon as we safely can, in order to celebrate the power of science with you. Thank you in advance for your loyalty and support.

The Montshire is a community resource for everyone, made possible by the support and participation of generous people like you.

At our 100-acre site in Norwich, Vermont, we serve 160,000 people each year. But our influence is not limited to the Upper Valley.

We serve individuals, families and schools throughout northern New England. And Montshire’s groundbreaking educational initiatives have garnered national recognition through its work to strengthen the ecosystem of science learning through support and collaboration.

As a nonprofit organization, the Montshire depends on individuals and businesses to support our mission and invest in the next generation. Your donations today make tomorrow possible.

There are several opportunities to support the Museum. Find the one that works best for you.

  • Choose a donor-level membership to provide support for the Montshire, and admission privileges for you and your family.
  • Or, make a gift separate from membership to support science exhibits, programs, and outreach.
