Within the Heritage Centre at the Albertland and Districts Museum we have priceless and irreplaceable collections from many pioneer Albertland Families including:
Accepting items for the collection is governed by the Museum's Acquisition and Collection policies.
To be accepted items should be in some way relevant to the history of the Albertland District.
They may not be accepted if they would have more relevance in another Museum outside the Albertland District or in a specialist Museum elsewhere. The Museum must be certain it will be able to house or display items in a secure and safe environment before accepting them.
Items that are seriously decayed or damaged or are in such a condition that they create a risk to other items in the collection will not be accepted. Items that are the same as or similar to items already in the collection will not be accepted unless they are in substantially better condition.
Items may be acquired by the Museum through gift, bequest, exchange or purchase. While the Museum pursues a policy of actively adding to its collection, financial constraints mean items are purchased only under exceptional circumstances. The Museum does not accept items on any type of long-term loan. All items accepted for the collection must have clear title and that title must pass fully to the Museum. An exception to this policy will be made for Taonga Tuturu deposited with the Museum under the terms of the Protected Objects Act 1975
