Through donations or bequests, the Prescott Museum receives objects that reflect the history of Prescott. The museum accepts donated items that are part of our local history.

The importance of artifacts is increased when more is known about the item and its provenance. Who made it, who owned it, how it was used, its condition, and whether we already have similar artifacts all contribute to its value.

We receive many generous offers of donations of artifacts. Please understand that we cannot accept all of them. If you have something you think would be of interest to the museum, please contact Fraser Laschinger, curator, at 

Tax receipts are available for donated items of significant monetary value. Please enquire for details.
