We have placed a moratorium on new additions to the collection until September 1, 2024.
While our collection has grown, our storage space has not. We need to take some time to assess our current collection, engage with communities, and reconsider what we will collect in the future to best represent the stories, people, and activities of Edmonton.
This time allows us to update plans and policies, reassess and improve storage for artifacts in the collection, and complete the processing of currently acquired artifacts. It will also allow staff more time to digitize the current collection.
If you cannot hold onto your items until September, visit Alberta Museums Association for a list of Alberta museums by region or name that may be potential options you may wish to offer your items to. If you would like to discuss specific alternatives for donating or disposing of your items please call us at 780-496-1490.
