Through our Adopt an Artifact program, people like you are helping protect and conserve the over 30,000 artifacts in our collections. We rely entirely on public donations for collections care, ensuring that our artifacts remain on display and in good condition through a process called "conservation."
In the gallery below, you can browse items that were adopted during our SpiritFunder campaign that began the program. Adoptions are ongoing and available at a variety of levels.
