A lot of thought goes into accepting potential donations. Each one is given careful consideration by museum curators, administrators, and directors. We want to ensure that any object accepted into the Smithsonian's collection can be properly cared for.

If you are interested in making the gift of an object to the Smithsonian, please fill out the form below. It will be directed to the appropriate museum professionals. Due to the volume of inquiries received, only those objects that elicit further interest will receive responses.
