Finding the Right Museum

Museums have different missions, themes and personalities. It's important to find a museum where your heirloom will be safe and appreciated.

Museum types include:

  • art
  • history, including regional, national or period specific
  • natural history
  • science
  • children's interests
  • themed, such as dolls, banjos or aviation
  • teaching and research

You might already have an emotional connection to a museum. If not, think locally for your heirloom's new home and visit near-by museums. Wander through the exhibits and talk to people. Gauge the level of trust you feel and how well the museum's mission matches yours.
