Donate to the Museum Collection

Through its collections, the museum strives to represent the collective histories and experiences of the people of Moses Lake and the Columbia Basin. Donations to the collection create a legacy that will be enjoyed for many generations. To help us better assess your proposed donation and how it can contribute to our mission, we ask you to complete and return a Donor Information Form. We will be most likely to accept your donation for the collection if:

  • it has a clear connection to the museum's mission;
  • it doesn't duplicate objects already in the collection;
  • it is sufficiently well documented that we can interpret it usefully for the public.
Please note that we cannot offer appraisals nor can we recommend appraisers. For these questions, please visit the American Society of Appraisers at or call ASA at 1-800-ASA-VALU.
