Museum of Capitalism: Artifact Donation Drive Event

Friday, November 1, 2019 at 3:00 pm

The Bark Room, Room M104, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

The Museum of Capitalism seeks donations of objects, documents, and other artifacts from the era of capitalism, or other items of historical interest, to be considered for inclusion in the Museum’s exhibitions and related programming. Individuals who possess items related to the history or memory of capitalism, or tied to a personal experience that could help others to understand or feel how life was lived under capitalism, are invited to come forward and share their stories with museum curators.

Those who make an appointment or bring in items are under no obligation to donate the items, and the personal preferences and privacy of donors will be respected at all times.

Please note: The Museum of Capitalism cannot accept unsolicited donations through the mail or in-person without prior acknowledgement and approval by museum staff, and it reserves the right to dispose of unsolicited items. The Museum of Capitalism is unable to answer queries regarding the authentication and appraisal of artifacts.

Advance appointments are strongly recommended.  Please visit our website or email
