Do you wish to donate something to the museum?

Alta Museum is often approached by people who wish to donate objects and photos. We are very grateful for such offers to contribute to the growth of our collection.

All objects suggested to the museum is considered in an admissions committee. Amongst other things, the committee considers whether the suggested objects have potential for research or exhibition, if it is relevant for local history, if similar objects can be found in the museum collection, and if the museum has space to manage to the object properly. Often the history of an object is what makes it interesting to the museum, which is why we need as much information as possible about the suggested donations from their donors.

Do you have an object you think could be of interest to Alta Museum? Please contact curator Lena Karlstrøm by telephone + 47 94 89 95 73 or email
