Donating objects

Most of the museum’s collection is built up from people donating items to the museum. We're very grateful for all offers of donation.

Unfortunately, we can't accept everything which we're offered. We have to use our space and resources wisely. If we already have an example of an object we will not duplicate it and we can only collect things with a good Norfolk connection.

If you would like to offer an item for donation email museums@norfolk.gov.uk. Include as much information about the item as possible including how you acquired it. Include a photo and dimensions as this will help us to make our decision.

One of our curatorial team will get back to you but this may take some time while we check our existing collections and work through the large number of offers we respond to.

Please don't bring your items into a museum without an appointment. We don't want you to have a wasted journey.
