The Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum is a non-profit, educational museum, founded in 1987 and run by volunteers. Your support is important and needed. Education, history, science, motivated learning, and interaction between generations are just a few of the benefits from this unique museum along with introducing people of all ages to the universal joy and amazement of tops, yo-yos, gyroscopes, and diabolos.
The Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum enriches and enhances the understanding of science and cultural history with an amazing exhibit, hands-on experiences, videos, classes, special events, live presentations and spinning programs. (Your help will make it even better!)
The Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum is part of Teacher Place & Parent Resources, a 501-c-3 non-profit, educational organization established in 1976. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law and donors will receive a letter regarding their contribution. The museum needs monetary support for heat and cooling costs, lights, mortgage, roof repair, display updating, brochure printing, mailing costs, cleaning supplies, etc.
You may designate contributions for specific needs, projects, or events if you wish. Areas of need include maintenance, overhead, promotion, signage, the Yo-Yo Convention, Top Spinning events, the Gyroscope Contest, top inventing classes, collection expansion, and top science education. On-site and outreach programs are both important. Recently National Public Radio talked about our International Top Spinning Day and interesting related terminology.
Donors may make their checks out to Spinning Top Museum/Teacher Place. Please mail to 533 Milwaukee AV, Burlington, Wisconsin, 53105, USA. (You are tops!)
