Donations support everything you love about the Springfield Museums—especially the Museums’ ability to inspire exploration, spark curiosity, generate awe, and sustain a love of learning through exhibits and hands-on activities.
By donating today, you help the Museums offer ongoing educational programing and lifelong learning, changing exhibitions and refreshes of current exhibitions. Most importantly, your donation continues a legacy.
In the late 1800s George Walter Vincent Smith and his wife Belle Townsley decided to share their vast art collection with the people of Springfield. This munificent act led to the construction of Springfield’s first museum and sparked an era of philanthropy that continues today.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you the Springfield Museums are able to host world-class exhibitions, present valuable educational programming and delight visitors from around the globe with everything from dinosaurs to the Cat in the Hat, ancient Greek statues to contemporary sculptures, and stone-age tools to combustion engines.
We could not do it without your support.

The Museums are honored to support the community through in-kind donations to non-profit organizations and schools.
Art & Artifacts
One of the most important ways that Museums build their collections is through the generosity of private collectors and benefactors who donate their treasured works of art, historical artifacts, or scientific collections to the Museums for the benefit of future generations.
Goods & Services
The Museums are grateful for donation of goods or professional services. Recent in-kind donations have included things such as rubber gloves and trash bags for the annual Earth Day Clean-Up, printing of invitations, holiday decorations, refreshments and more.
