The Museum is fortunate to have been collecting artefacts for 50 years and factors such as the condition of an item or what is known about an artefact can determine whether the Museum accepts items or not.
Acquiring new artefacts for the collections is a process that is governed by the Museum’s Collections Development Policy.
How to donate an object
If you would like to offer to donate an artefact or collection of papers to the Museum, please start the acquisition process by downloading the form below and submitting when completed.
Receipt of the form will be acknowledged within 10 working days. All acquisition offers are considered, and a member of the curatorial team will be in touch to discuss the offer.
