Adopt an Artifact
Muskoka Heritage Place has a history of its own, dating back to 1958 and we can't wait to share with you our Adopt-an-Artifact program which provides the opportunity to "adopt" a chosen artifact for one year. When you adopt an artifact, you receive a Certificate of Adoption with a photo and description of the item you have adopted. The name of the adoptee will be displayed on this website next to the adopted item (unless the adoptee prefers to remain anonymous). Proceeds from the program will be used to preserve artifacts that represent the proud history of Muskoka.
All adoptions are for a period of one year, from the prearranged date of your choice.
Please note that the ownership of an adopted artifact is not transferred and that all rights regarding care and display of artifacts are retained by Muskoka Heritage Place.
How to Adopt
The Things Group has 4 levels of adoption and the Buildings & Trains Group has 5 levels of adoption. The higher the level of adoption, the more benefit you receive.
- Choose an artifact from one of the two groups, Things Group or Buildings & Trains Group
- Select the level of adoption you wish
- Contact Sara White, Collections Coordinator to secure your adoption and make arrangements for payment, or discuss your idea for a specific artifact you may be interested in adopting
