Newcastle Museum has policies and processes in place to manage donations to make sure that they comply with our
 Collections Policy (pdf).

How do I donate?

If you are interested in making a donation, the first step is to contact the Museum Registrar via phone or email. The Registrar's contact details are below.

Please provide the Registrar with as much information as you can about the donation, including images if you have some. 

The Registrar may then arrange a time to meet with you to view the donation and learn more about its history, condition and relevance to the collection.

Please do not leave a donation offer at the museum unless previously arranged with the Registrar.

If a donation offer is not accepted the registrar may suggest other appropriate collecting institutions for the donor’s consideration. 

Once a donation is accepted it will be conserved, catalogued and placed into storage from where it will be available for exhibition and research.
