Adopt an Artifact


Adopting a spinning wheel or sword from the museum’s collection is a unique opportunity. While you won’t be able to take the object from our facilities (it will remain as part of the museum’s collection), as part of this program, you can create a personal connection with an artifact that resonates with you.

Simply choose from one of five annual Giving Levels, starting at $100, for this symbolic adoption and you will be supporting the ongoing care and preservation of these extraordinary artifacts.

About the Program
When you adopt an artifact, your name will be showcased on a label on the artifact in the museum’s galleries for all to see. Prefer to remain anonymous? You can do that too. This meaningful initiative also makes a great gift or memorial tribute. Adoption rates are for one year at a time and based on the type of object you choose.

Please see the following list for Giving Levels and an example of what is available in each category or view a wider selection by scheduling an appointment to come view the collection and archives.

With over 40,000 items in the Collections, there’s much to choose from!
