The Museum at the Bighorns cannot accept unsolicited donations mailed to or dropped off at the Museum. Before items are acquired for the collections, they go through a rigorous review process. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for the Collections Committee to make a timely and informed decision about your offer. Usually, we can respond within four to six weeks, but some offers may take longer to review.
In order for us to understand if we can care for the items and how they will help us tell the story of Sheridan County and the Bighorn Mountain region, we ask several questions about your donation. Please describe the items you wish to donate. The more specific you can be about their age, size, and condition, the easier it will be for us to decide if we are able to care for the items. Tell us about the history of the items and their connection to Sheridan County and the Bighorn Mountain region. Why are these items unique? What are some personal stories associated with the items? This information helps us decide if these items are right for our collection or not. We also need to know who the legal owner is of the items being offered, and what is their primary contact information. Is the donor able to deliver or ship any items accepted by the Museum? Please include digital photos and information about any other relevant documentation. You can submit this information either by emailing us through the link at the right or by downloading and filling out the form below. Return the form to firstname.lastname@example.org or Museum at the Bighorns, 850 Sibley Circle, Sheridan, WY 82801.
