Please contact the Osage Nation Museum directly to discuss in-kind or monetary donations at Collections' objects must fit within the Osage Nation Museum's established collecting statement; not all objects offered to the Osage Nation Museum will be accepted. The Osage Nation Museum occasionally purchases objects for its collections; however, acquisition funding is limited.

If you would like to make a collection donation or offer of sale, please download, complete, and return the Acquisition Proposal Questionnaire. When submitting the Acquisition Proposal Questionnaire, please include photographs (digital or hardcopy) of the object(s) you would like to donate or sell. Our acquisitions review committee will determine whether your donation meets the collecting criteria and will notify you of its decision.

Please do not send or bring the object(s) to the Osage Nation Museum unless specifically requested to do so.
