We greatly appreciate all donations.

Financial donations

We welcome donations from groups and individuals to support Waikato Museum's various projects. Donations can be for exhibition development, restoration projects or specific arts, tangata whenua or science projects. Please contact us to discuss.

Collections donations

Due to the available storage space we have, we need to choose carefully which items can be accepted.

Once accepted, donation forms will be filled and signed by all parties.

There are a number of different ways Waikato Museum acquires objects into our collections:

  • Purchase
  • Gift
  • Bequests

If you have an item you wish to donate to Waikato Museum's collections, please read about our consideration process and then complete the Visitor Object Consideration form.

You can also contact our Collections team with any further enquiries. 

We are grateful to all those who have played a role in supporting our Museum.
