  • Donate an Artifact: Our permanent collection of artifacts – ethnic crafts, musical instruments, puppets, costumes and textiles – is the foundation for everything that we do. Although robust from certain regions of the world the collection is not as comprehensive in others. Donations of quality, ethnic artifacts add significantly to the richness of our collection. With our rotating, regional exhibits, particularly, donations and/or loans of items are not only appreciated but add depth and breadth to those exhibits. All donations are tax deductible.

Volunteer: As with all not-for-profits we rely and the generous time and talent of volunteers. Tasks include: museum attendant, office support, artifact data management, special events, and artifact repair and maintenance.
