Make an Artifact Donation
The Atheneum Society of Wilbraham is always
happy to consider donations that will enhance the breadth and
depth of its collections. The society’s primary focus is on
items of historical significance to Wilbraham but will consider
items of historical significance to a larger geographic area.
The museum accepts artifacts from prehistoric
times to the present day for our collection. We collect a wide
variety of artifacts from those used historically by well-known
Wilbraham people to everyday objects of today. Each potential
donation is reviewed by the curatorial staff members to evaluate
its appropriateness for the permanent collection.
Artifacts accepted into the collection should meet the following
1. The artifact has a Wilbraham (or local area) connection and
a known history (who made the item, who used the item, where was
it acquired, when was it used, etc.).
2. The artifact is in stable physical condition.

4. The artifact can be acquired without restrictions, such as
requirements for a long-term loan or
permanent exhibition of the artifact.

interest to us please contact us by phone at 596-4097 or through
email at email@example.com. Please do not drop off
or mail objects without first contacting the museum; we want to
