Collections & Donations
Your collections enquiry may be answered, or partially answered, on our Collections FAQ page. Please read this before contacting the collections team.

Gifts from the public are central to building our collection and we are very grateful for all offers of donations.

We are currently reviewing our existing collections at the Museum of Childhood, ahead of a redevelopment that we are planning for our galleries. During this period, we wanted to flag that we won’t be accepting additional objects, and also won’t be replying to offers made by email, letter, or telephone, in case you are trying to contact us about donations.

Thank you for all your support, and we will let you know once our review is complete. If you wish to donate items to a museum, we would recommend that you contact Sudbury Hall, the National Trust’s Museum of Childhood, or a local museum if that object has a strong local connection.


The Museum’s exhibitions and displays are currently programmed to 2020. At this stage we will not be considering any further proposals at present.
