Museum policies and donating
Thank you for your interest in donating an artefact to our museum.
The majority of the collection on display at The Spring is not owned by us, instead it is on loan from Portsmouth City Council and Hampshire County Council via the Hampshire Cultural Trust. This means we are unable to accept donations of anything that is particularly precious as we do not have the appropriate storage facilities to care for it properly and we would not be appropriately insured.
If you would like advice about a particular object or wish to donate an artefact to a museum, please contact:
Hampshire Cultural Trust
If you have an item you would like to donate because it reflects part of social history, please contact the Hampshire Cultural Trust
