Thinking of Donating Objects

Our collections are created by the kind generosity of many people with links to The Scenic Rim and particularily the Beaudesert area.

Your Donation could become a valuable part of our collection for future generations of the region.

Unfortunately we cannot accept all donations. Donations are assessed on their significance and relevance to the region and whether any historically interesting or significant people are connected with it. The history of the item is important in our assessment of significance and your input of any stories or other provenance is of great value in establishing significance “A good story attached to an item makes the exhibit all the more interesting to our visitors “


We evaluate your donation with two overiding factors :-

a) Do we already have examples of the artefact

b) Do we have space to house the object?

We are desperately short of storage and display space and a new or relocated building would be a welcome donation

We would also address the need for restoration or preservation work required along with our ability to perform such tasks.

If you would like to discuss your donation please contact either The Curator or the Historian on (07)5541 3740
