One Million Visitors

3rd graders from Calhoun Elementary were welcomed collectively as Tellus Science Museum’s one millionth visitor.


Tellus Science Museum opened on January 12, 2009. Since then, the Museum has welcomed over a million visitors from all over the world and has had over 90,000 children participate in our educational programs. As Tellus gears up for a full year of activities we are encouraging individuals, corporations, and foundations to consider sponsoring one of the many opportunities that exist with the Museum. Sponsorship provides the opportunity for charitable giving along with increased recognition and involvement with the Museum and the community it serves. With a variety of opportunities to choose from, you are sure to find a project you feel passionate about supporting.

We ask that you partner with the Museum by pledging your support as a sponsor for adult and children’s programming, permanent exhibits, and special events.

We recognize the responsibility to effectively promote our sponsors and will utilize all means of internal and external media. Sponsor benefits range from admission to the Museum to digital advertising to complimentary facility rentals.
