DAVENPORT -- Celebrate Mother's Day on May 9 in a BIG way at the Putnam Museum's IMAX Theatre when Moms get in free! Bring your mummy to meet our mummy or take her on an IMAX adventure to deep space, or to the outback or up close and personal with aliens! Moms get in free with a paid children's (or accompanying adult's) ticket purchase. It's BIG fun at the Putnam Museum and IMAX!

There are three amazing films from which to choose: Hubble 3D; Australia: Land Beyond Time and Avatar: An IMAX 3D Experience! The Putnam's IMAX® features a giant screen six stories tall and seven stories wide; 10,000 watt digital surround sound; and is the most technologically advanced projection system in the world. It has 270 sloped, stadium-style seats and offers both 2D and 3D IMAX presentations. It was voted Best Movie Theatre in local polls.

Then take your mummy to meet our mummy! The 3,000-year-old temple chantress resides in the Unearthing Ancient Egypt Gallery. Explore the Mississippi River environment in Black Earth/Big River exhibit hall, or discover oceanic cultures in Ocean Voyagers: People of the Pacific, on exhibit in the Main Gallery.
