Donating Objects

Thank you for your interest in donating items to the Mountain View Museum.  The Museum acquires new items for its permanent collection through the generosity of individual donations and/or bequests.  Acquired collection items are used to support the museum's research activities, educational programs, and exhibitions. 

In assessing potential donations, the Museum considers whether the items meet the following criteria: 
-are relevant to the Museums mission;
-complement or strengthen existing collections;
-and can be given proper care.

Acquired collections are used to support the museum's research activities, educational programs, and exhibitions. 


If you are interested in donating collection items to the Museum, please contact our staff before you bring your items to the Museum. Please do not drop off or mail items without first contacting the Museum. Staff want to make sure that your potential gift is correctly identified and cared for.

Donating Cash:

Cash donations will be directed to the area of most need or used for a specific purpose such as an acquisition, exhibition presentation, publication or educational program.  Donate at the Museum or by mail at Box 3882, Olds AB. T4H 1P6.
