Ashburton Museum is open to receiving donations of items that hold historical or heritage significance in relation to the history of the people of Ashburton District.

Heritage donations have helped create one of New Zealand’s most comprehensive regional archives. Our extensive photographic collection has over six million frames. We also collect diaries, records, objects, maps, plans and more that tell the stories of the region and its people.

PHOTOGRAPHS, DIARIES, MAPS OR OBJECTS OF HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE – BIG OR SMALL, YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS MATTER.

While we can’t accept every item offered we are always keen to consider if an item is suitable for the collection. Once your offer has been received the museum follows a formal process to evaluate items offered to the collection. Not all items can be accepted. In some cases we will advise a more suitable repository.

We welcome offers and value the opportunity to discuss how your gift can become a treasure for the future.
