Adopt a Dummy

As part of our fundraising effort to build a new museum building, you can "adopt" one of the Vent Haven Museum residents! The adoption fee is $50 for one year and includes the following perks:

  • Recognition on the dummy's card acknowledging that you've adopted the dummy for a year (see photo as an example). 

  • Acknowledgment and thanks on the Vent Haven Museum blog and Facebook page

  • The right to renew your adoption of the same dummy the following year. 

  • As Vent Haven is a 501(c)3 organization, your contribution may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax attorney as individual situations vary. 

  • Knowledge that you've helped your dummy (and all of the other dummies in the collection, too!) have a state of the art home in our new Vent Haven Museum building. 

Gode Head

Fun Fact:

This head was created by K.S. Gode and was donated by Gode in November 2018 in celebration of Gode's 80th birthday.  If you'd like to adopt him, click below!

The following dummies are currently available for online adoption:

Penn Gillette

Fun Fact:

Damien James used this puppet (along with a Teller puppet) in his appearance on Penn & Teller's "Fool Us" show.  Both dummies were donated in 2019 and are made of foam & latex.  Tourists love this recognizable face!

Talking Hat

Fun Fact: 

This novelty hat was made circa 1958 by Finis Robinson and was used & donated by Phil Wood.  It is part of the Class of 2020.
