The average visitor spends 1 to 2 hours in the museum.

Can I View My Relative’s (or My Own) Donated Medals?

Yes. Visitors are welcome to view medals. If possible please contact us in advance to let us know you are coming, so we can ensure a staff member is on hand to assist. Please ask for assistance at the admission counter.

Can I View Other Items My Family has Donated?

I Would Like to Donate Something to the Museum – How Do I Do This?

For artefact donation enquiries, please contact the Registrar  and send photographs of items if possible. We will consult with Collection staff and our Collections Policy to see if they fall within its scope.

My Relative has Donated Something In The Past, Can I Get It?

No, not normally. The museum respects the wishes of the donor at the time of the donation, accepting any items received in good faith.

Any request must be in writing, addressed to the curator.

How much Would My Artefact/Collectable Be Worth?

We are sorry, but museum staff are not able to give artefact valuations.
