How are potential donations reviewed?

Donation offers are reviewed by the curatorial staff who then brings the recommendation to the Museum’s Staff Collection Committee. The committee follows the criteria detailed in the Museum Collection Scope, mentioned above. The condition of the donation is also taken into consideration so we can ensure that the museum can store and properly care for the item, as well as make them accessible.
