Kerry County Museum welcomes the offer of donation of objects related to Kerry’s past. If you are interested in donating an object to the Museum’s collection please contact us. We will consider all potential donations and whether KCM is the most suitable place for them. If the object you offer is deemed not suitable for KCM, we will be happy to advise you on other options.

Once an object comes into the Museum it will be evaluated and a decision will normally be made within six weeks as to whether or not it is to be accepted. It is the Museum’s policy generally not to accept material on loan from individuals in cases where donation clearly the more appropriate option.

To discuss any of the issues raised here contact Kerry County Museum.
