Funding Needs

There are a variety of projects within the Plymouth Historical Museum that would help enhance our exhibits and bring us into the 21st century. Many of them involve technology, which will keep the Museum relevant to current and future generations. In addition, the building itself is 41 years old and needs repairs and upkeep on a regular basis. We need money for special projects and to maintain the building that houses the Plymouth Historical Museum.
