Each of the four independent museums in Ryedale has a Collecting Policy, which sets out their areas of interest for acquiring new items. The policies show the types of objects they are looking to acquire, depending on gaps in each museum’s collection and the availability of appropriate storage.
If you have an object which you feel you may like to donate to a museum collection, please contact the appropriate museum directly. Each museum holds many more objects than they can show at any one time, so your donation may be held in store rather than put immediately on display.
