Donating to the Collection

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Chicago History Museum collection. If you have documents, images, or artifacts that you believe would complement our collection, please tell us about them. To assist us in our review, please fully describe your proposed donation by including information about its size, condition, and historical significance, and attach photographs or photocopies of the materials, if possible. Please do not send the original materials you wish to donate to the museum at this time. If you have not already done so, take a moment to review the Museum’s Collecting Scope and Criteria.
