Offer material to the collection
We are currently unable to process or accept offers of material for our collections until further notice.
Donated objects are recorded, preserved and cared for to the highest standards. However, this comes at a high cost, forcing us to be selective about what we can now accept into our keeping.
Any new donations accepted into our care must represent a meaningful addition to the collection, providing insights into the human experience of war and conflict and the impact it has had on people’s lives.
Please note the American Air Museum does not accept book donations.
