The CHM relies on the generosity of its friends and supporters to serve to more than 110,000 participants each year. From planetarium shows to living history, concerts to workshops, the CHM serves school children, adults and families.


Invest in the wonder of learning by giving to the Culture & Heritage Museums. Your gift supports programs that reveal the wonders of the Carolina Piedmont’s natural resources, the wonder of history as shared at Historic Brattonsville, the wonder of imagination through programs designed for our youngest learners, and the wonder of the sky revealed at our Settlemyre Planetarium.

Wonder is an amazing thing, please give here today.
