Artefact Donations

Please be advised that the museum is not accepting artefact donations until January 2024 due to overflowing backlog. Please check back again at this time. If you wish to discuss further details, please contact our Curator, Dr. Georgiana Stanciu.

Once you have decided to donate to our museum, please fill out our Intention to Donate Form (downloadable PDF) and provide an itemized listing with a brief description of every item e.g. title, timeline, provenance (history). All offers are considered and once a decision is made, the curatorial staff will communicate with every potential donor for further arrangements. Please do not attach any items to this intention to donate form.
