Museum Funding

Fundraising efforts for the expansion of Burpee Museum and the Discovery Center are nearly 60 percent complete.

Leaders of the Connecting Our Future campaign have raised nearly $5.1 million in donations. They need nine and a half million to start construction.

Representatives from the museums are contacting businesses and government agencies for major donations.

One of the most noticeable additions will be an exhibit hall that connects Burpee and Discovery. Jane the Dinosaur will also get a new home.
