Will Your Donation Make History?
The Museum’s collection of artifacts is guided by its Collections Objectives, which state that the Museum “will collect materials that illustrate the history of the people and environments of the Fort Collins area. Artifacts collected by the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery will be specific to the Fort Collins area and Cache La Poudre Valley, or be representative of a regional or national lifestyle trend of which Fort Collins was/is a part”. The Museum actively collects objects that help tell the story of science in our region.
Generally, the Museum is interested in objects that fulfill these criteria:
- Have a strong connection to the Fort Collins area and community. The more background information that comes with an object, the more valuable it will be as a museum artifact.
- Are in good condition. The Museum does not have a conservator on staff, or a budget to fund extensive conservation work. Objects should be in a suitable condition to be exhibited.
- Do not duplicate objects already in the collection.
