How To Donate

Cork Public Museum actively seeks acquisitions that are of interest to Cork and relate to Cork's rich and varied historical heritage. Please consult the museum's collection policy for further information on what we do and do not collect. If you are interested in donating to to the museum please contact us at to arrange an appointment with the curator or another member of the curatorial staff to view, assess and hopefully complete the transfer of your material to the museum's permanent collection.
