Dorking Museum welcomes items with direct relevance to Dorking and its environs.
Unfortunately, we are not able to accept everything we are offered. If we already have good examples of an object within the Collections we are unlikely to accept more, and there are some types of objects that we almost never acquire now.
Please note we are unable to accept offers by post or in person. If you wish to make an offer of material, we ask you to mail us on email@example.com with details of the item.
Our Collecting decisions are influenced by various factors:
We have particular priorities and programmes for collecting.
Some areas of the Collections are already very well developed.
We have to use our space and resources wisely.
We cannot acquire material where current ownership is unknown or might be disputed.
