NVMA preserves a wide variety of historical records, documents, photographs, and artifacts related to North Vancouver. Most of them—other than municipal records—have been donated by individuals, organizations, and businesses. In deciding whether to accept documents and objects offered for donation, we consider the following criteria:
What is NVMA particularly interested in acquiring?
Notice regarding Museum donations
The Museum is currently reviewing its artifact collections for relevance and quality in order to reduce the number of objects in its care. New artifacts are acquired very selectively. Space and resources are limited, so any new objects considered for acquisition by the Museum must meet most of the criteria outlined above.
Where a fair-market monetary value of over $25 can be established for a donation, NVMA can provide a charitable donation tax receipt to the donor.
To inquire about donating records, documents, and/or photographs call or e-mail Janet Turner, Archivist. Tel. 604-990-3700, ext. 8011
To inquire about donating three-dimensional objects, call or e-mail Luc Desmarais, Collections Coordinator. Tel. 604-990-3700, ext. 8005
We do not accept “walk-in” donations at our premises. Please call ahead to make an appointment with the Archivist or the Collections Coordinator to discuss the material you are considering donating.
