Museums are closed for the winter.
If you would like to support us with a monetary donation, please see our membership form below. Also see our wish list or contact us with questions if you are wondering about our specific projects. These donations should be sent, along with a completed form, to P.O. Box 44 in Pittsfield, IL.
If you would like to donate an artifact, we greatly prefer that you make arrangements with a board member to meet at the museum so this can be done in person. If that is not possible, you can fill out the donation form below and send your carefully packaged donation and completed form to us in the mail.
It is important to the integrity of our building to have all the original windows. A few are broken in some way and need fixed so the building can be properly secured. We are asking for $250 per window, but any help is appreciated.
It is vital that our artifacts have a controlled climate, which they do not currently have as we only have air conditioning in one room and we have no heat. Installing central air and heat will cost $12,000+. Any help is appreciated.
Part of having a controlled climate for our artifacts is clean air. We need to purify and dehumidify the air in the building. Air purifiers and dehumidifiers for our large rooms will cost about $300 each, but any help is appreciated.
We hope to expand into the second story of the building, but cannot do so until we have elevator access. This project will cost $50,000+. Any help is appreciated.
Any help is appreciated toward paying for repairs, utilities bills and other recurring costs.
To further protect our artifacts and original windows, we would like UV protective storm windows and new shades/blinds.
