Where Did the Museum's Collections Come From?
Throughout the Museum’s history, it has accepted and included discarded collections and unwanted specimens collected by individuals and institutions from throughout the world. They have been used as educational tools in the Museum as well as in outreach programs. Because many of these objects have little data accompanying them, they can be handled by visitors. Contact the Museum's Director if you have something you wish to donate or loan to the Museum.
