Donating objects or collections

The Museum is still collecting contemporary and historical objects and photographs from around the world. We have always benefited greatly from donations by the Museum's many friends and supporters. If you have an object, photograph or collection that you feel would be of interest to the Museum, we would be happy to discuss it with you. In the first instance, we suggest that you write to us with brief details and photograph(s) of the object or collection. This will allow us to put you in contact with the most appropriate specialist curator who can then advise you further. Please do not bring objects to the Museum without having spoken to the Collections Department - we are unable to accept any objects which are brought in without prior authorisation.
