Museum Information



The Palm Beach Museum of Natural History is a corporate tax exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) entity established under the laws of the state of Florida. The Museum has been formed by a group of paleontologists, archaeologists, science educators, and museum professionals dedicated to the establishment of a premier regional center for the study and public presentation of the Natural History and Archaeology of Florida and the Caribbean. There is no formal affiliation with Palm Beach County.

We are presently evaluating a number of locations within Palm Beach County for the establishment of our permanent museum facility. Such a location should offer a close proximity to educational institutions and offer a variety of cultural attractions and amenities that will enhance public support and serve attract visitors. The museum itself would be a significant addition to any community redevelopment effort. Please contact us if you would like to discuss our plans and requirements or if you have a site that you would like to offer for our consideration. Remember, the museum is a non-profit entity and your assitance may be tax deductable.

We ask that anyone who may be interested in making a financial contribution to the museum please contact our Fundraising Coordinator Katie Lizana at The Palm Beach Museum of Natural History is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization and contributions are tax deductable under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. We are also qualified to receive tax deductable bequests, devices, transferes or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522 of the code.

We are also seeking to expand the scope and variety of our collections. If you would like to donate a collection or an individual artifact or speciemen to the museum please contact our Director, Mr. Rudolph F. Pascucci, at We would also be interested in discussing any items that you would be interested in placing on loan with the museum. Such loans may be of varying length and you may specify the terms and conditions under which the museum may make use of your material. A formal pledge of any donation or loan conditioned upon the eventual location of the museum would be highly useful in planning our space requirements and future exhibits. A pledge from you would be a great way to help us establish and demonstrate the community support needed to make the museum a success!
