Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village - Donating Artifacts

WANTED: Artifacts for the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village

The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is looking for artifacts that pre-date 1930. Buildings at this living history museum are furnished to represent their original appearance during a chosen year between 1892 and 1940.

Artifacts are carefully selected to furnish the historic buildings so they look the same as they did in the past. Some of the furnishings are original to the buildings while others are chosen to represent these original furnishings. Even items in poor condition, if rare, may provide valuable information to help us furnish the buildings accurately. In some instances, objects are borrowed so they can be documented and reproduced.

While many items are needed, we are not able to accept everything. If you have an item that you think will help us furnish the historic buildings, let us know and we will tell you if it meets the specific furnishing requirements.

Potential donors should contact our curator by telephone or email to discuss the criteria for donating artifacts into the collection. It is recommended you attach a photo of your item to your email.

If you are interested in donating historic items, or have items to show, please contact:
