Art & Artifacts

One of the most important ways that Museums build their collections is through the generosity of private collectors and benefactors who donate their treasured works of art, historical artifacts, or scientific collections to the Museums for the benefit of future generations.

Goods & Services

The Museums are grateful for donation of goods or professional services. Recent in-kind donations have included things such as rubber gloves and trash bags for the annual Earth Day Clean-Up, printing of invitations, holiday decorations, refreshments and more.
