In evaluating an object for acceptance into the Permanent Collection of the Brigham City Museum, our curatorial staff will consider the following questions:
- What is the local historical significance of the object?
- Is there documentation (written or oral) on the object?
- Is the object in need of conservation work?
- Does the object duplicate or support the existing collection?
- What is the object’s exhibit potential?
- What impact would the object have on available storage space?
Acceptance obligates the Museum to furnish professional, long-term care for the object; to provide a stable, secure environment for it in both storage and exhibit situations; and to protect it from unnecessary handling, excessive light, and other damaging effects. A gift contract, listing the items and signed by the donor and a Museum representative, makes the transaction official and provides both parties with a legal record of the gift.
The value of objects contributed to the Brigham City Museum collections is tax-deductible; however, as an interested party in the transaction, the Museum cannot appraise the value of donated objects for tax purposes. Objects are exhibited at the discretion of the Museum. Artifacts from the collections are used for public display in exhibits where they fit exhibit themes. Objects of a fragile nature (textiles, for example) are periodically rotated in our longer-term exhibits to avoid prolonged exposure to light and dust. Collections of objects are available for study by researchers, by appointment.
We cannot appraise items proposed for donations or otherwise.

Thinking of donating an object to the Brigham City Museum?
Speak with the Museum Director. If necessary, we can come to look over the offered material. We appreciate the opportunity to consider new acquisitions. If an offered item falls outside the Museum’s collection scope because it was not used locally, the staff can help locate a museum in the area where the object was originally used. Some objects that do not fit the criteria for the Museum’s Permanent Collection may be accepted into our Use Collection for education or other potentially consumptive use, with the agreement of the potential donor.
