Donating Objects

Thank you for your interest in donating items to the Mountain View Museum and Archives.  The Museum acquires new items for its permanent collection through the generosity of individual donations and/or bequests. In assessing potential donations, the Museum considers whether the items meet the following criteria:
     -are relevant to the Museum’s mission; -complement or strengthen existing collections; -and can be given proper care.

Acquired collections are used to support the Museum’s research activities, educational programs, and exhibitions.

If you are interested in donating collections to the Museum, please contact our staff BEFORE you bring your items to the Museum. Please do not drop off or mail items without first contacting the Museum—we want to make sure that your potential gift is properly identified and cared for.
