Explore the world around you at the Putnam!

By Lori Arguello, Director of Marketing
Putnam Museum and IMAX Theatre, Davenport

Explore deep space, deep seas and the world around you at one of the region’s most-loved venues! The Putnam Museum and IMAX Theatre in Davenport combines learning with fun — it’s a unique, multi-sensory experience we call “entertainment for your mind.” With six immersive permanent exhibit halls, two changing exhibit halls, a giant six-story IMAX screen and lots of family-friendly events, the Putnam offers great multi-generational experiences. It’s fun for the entire family!

On the GIANT screen!

See more! Hear more! Feel more! With 10,000 watt digital surround sound, and a six-story screen, IMAX is the ultimate movie going experience! These are just some of the films you can see this spring in the Putnam’s IMAX: Hubble 3D; Avatar 3D: The IMAX Experience; Wild Ocean 3D; and Australia: Land Beyond Time. Coming this summer is How to Train Your Dragon 3D; Shrek Forever After 3D and Legends of Flight 3D! You just haven’t seen it until you’ve seen it in IMAX!
