Donating to our Collections

Canterbury Museum is grateful for the generosity of the Canterbury community for its support and gifts to the Museum over many years.

While the Museum welcomes offers of gifts, please be aware that all potential gifts must go through an acquisitions process. We are not able to accept all items offered. The Museum is guided by our collecting themes and policies.

If you have an item that you are thinking of gifting to the Museum, please contact or 03 366 5000. You will then be put in touch with a member of the Curatorial team.

If you would like to donate or bequest money to the Museum, please go to our sponsor and donors page or to our bequests page.
