Are you interested in donating? Follow these steps!

1.

Ensure that the artifact you wish to donate is in good condition and is pertinent to the Edson/Yellowhead County area. We must be selective about adding to the collection, as space is limited.

2.

Phone, email or stop by the museum to fill out a donation form! Please include as much information as you can on the object. The more information we have, the more of a tale we can tell.

3.

The Museum’s collections committee meets quarterly. Depending on when your information is received, it may take several months to reach a decision on your potential donation.
